North Coast 500 Business Description

Inverewe Gardens

These luscious gardens are part of the National Trust for Scotland property and are often described as one of the most beautiful gardens in Scotland, and definitely a must see while on The North Coast 500.

The gardens are set on the edge of Loch Ewe, with historic botanical gardens that are full of exotic plants from all over the world.

The gardends in Inverewe were first started around 1862 with mainly rock and scrub willows but now has some amazing plants to see such as blue poppies, rare Wollemi pines, New Zealand olearia and rhododendrons from as far reaching as China and Nepal; testament to what can be created with a little imagination.

As well as all the beautiful plants and flowers, nature lovers should keep a close eye on the shores of the loch where they may catch a glimpse of some local wildlife that thrive in the area like wading birds, pine marten and otters.

    North Coast 500 and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

    The World Health Organisation has declared a public health emergency of international concern, and in response, the four UK Chief Medical Officers changed the UK risk level from low to moderate. This does not mean that the risk to individuals has increased, and it does not mean that any additional precautions are necessary. The increase to moderate is a reflection of the need for governments and the health service to escalate our planning and preparation in case of a more widespread outbreak.

    What are the North Coast 500 Speed Limits?

    If you are planning on zooming around the NC500 like a bad thing then maybe you should realise a few things first about the speed limits on this iconic coastal route around the scottish highlands. firstly there are no motorways in the highland's and very few sections of dual carriageway, thus the whole route is nmade up of single carriageway and single track roads. The national speed limit on single carriage roads is 60mph for cars & motorcycles 50mph for Motorhomes (the average free flow speed around the route is 48mph), though there may be few occasions that you will be safe to drive at this speed. The reality is, the north coast 500 has become such a popular route in peak season that congestion has become a sad reality in such a rural setting. with sports cars, motorhomes, cyclists, walkers, hikers, campervans, daytrippers, sightseers, roadtrippers, truckers & van drivers not to mention the local people just trying to commute. (the Isle Of Skye was closed to Motorhomes for a period in 2019 due to the congestion on the island). If you are planning this nc500 route in 2020 and you do find yourself caught up in traffic don't be a fanny, remember you are part of the problem and part of the solution. Courtesy patience & manners are a must on this road so drive correctly for the conditions. You don't want to end up In Fanny Bay! Do You?
