North Coast 500 Business Description

Cawdor Castle is steeped in intrigue and history.

Cawdor Castle dates from the late 14th century, built as a private fortress by the Thanes of Cawdor. An ancient medieval tower built around the legendary holly tree. 

This fortification, founded by William the Lion in 1179 was sited to command the ford over the river Nairn near the sea.

That castle has since vanished without trace. The family had another residence at Old Calder which, according to the Exchequer accounts, was last repaired in 1398. Again, not much remains of that building apart from faint crop-marks.

    Overnight Roadside Parking On the North Coast 500

    Overnight Parking is generally allowed on the North Coast 500 but there are exceptions to this. Any restrictions enforced will be limited to those few instances where the impact of overnight parking has a significant impact on the local community. This will be confined to village and town centres, and potentially certain "destination lay-bys" in the open countryside which serve as car parks for all types of visitors.
