The North Coast 500 is ideally suited for touring and sightseeing, chilling and taking things slowly.

We would recommend driving the North Coast 500 in around 5 days, but 7 to 10 days would be more realistic timescale to take it all in.

You could possibly do it with 3 full days and nights, but we recommend more time for your own enjoyment of this spectaclular road trip.

You can travel the route either clockwise or anti-clockwise it's up to you.

If you want to go straight for the breathtaking views, we recommend heading West straight off.

If you go direct to Wick John O’ Groats which is roughly around the middle of the amazing route, you will most certainly enjoy breathtaking cliffs and beaches both on the East and West!
