The North Coast 500

Only three years since its inception, the North Coast 500 has already become one of the worlds iconic road touring routes. Popular with motorists and motor homers, we think the best way to experience the NC500 is by bicycle. Whether you bring your own bike, or hire comfortable tourers or hybrids from us, cycling speed is ideal for seeing the sights and experiencing all this fantastic region has to offer.

The West Coast of Scotland already had a reputation as a premier cycle touring destination. Now, the wonderful scenery of the North and East Coasts are also attracting the attention they have long deserved.

Cyclists also have the opportunity to adjust their route to avoid some of the busier roads. We really recommend the “wee mad road of Inverpolly” and National Cycle Network route 1 from Tain using the Nigg - Cromarty ferry to the Black Isle (June to September), but we can also recommend other additions and short-cuts depending upon your requirements.

Of course 500 miles might be more than you want to consider for a relaxed cycling holiday. Why not break the NC500 into two one week trips, using Durness as a mid-point and let us pick you up and drop you off in our comfortable bike taxi.
