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.

  • New tariff at electric vehicle (EV) charging points On The North Coast 500

    The Highland Council has decided to introduce a tariff at EV charge points, starting on 1 June 2021.

    The new tariff is intended to recover costs associated with the operation and upkeep of the network, transitioning Highland Council to a more sustainable operating model.

    The number of EVs on the roads has doubled in the last year, therefore the risk in electricity supply will be upwards of those numbers without a tariff in place. The approach taken is fully endorsed by the Electric Vehicle Association Scotland and is designed to enable the Council to support and maintain the service offered, but also encourage best practice amongst users at charge points, facilitating all journeys.
