Driving part of the NC500 and it is truly worth it. You get so many different aspects of the highlands, the way the terrain changes and never disappoints.
Be aware the north western sections are mostly single lanes with passing bays (regular) so be patient and follow them rules.
It can be difficult to stop and take photos so enjoy the views and keep them in your minds memories.

This is a trip we have wanted to make since we first bought a motorhome six years ago. We decided we would travel up the east coast, then down the west coast having been told the east coast was boring - what a load of nonsense. The east coast is beautiful, the roads super, the people lovely.
Our first stop was at Yellowcraig motorhome site, north and east of Edinburgh. Lovely site, I would recommend it.
Next we moved further north to East Balthangie Caravan park. This is located in the middle of nowhere at the end of a long winding road, but is so worth finding. Peaceful, wonderful countryside views, lovely owners, great facilities and a field set aside for dogs to run free! Again high praise and recommend it.
Moving on to the highlands next - whatever has happened to the roads? It was like driving over a badly maintained corrugated tin roof, only less comfortable. The vibration dislodged the 12 volt control unit which eventually ceased functioning and left us with no lighting, heating, water pump, tv, etc. Total disaster as my wife is disabled, mostly wheelchair-bound and suffers from MS, if we wanted to camp we would not be in a motorhome.
The camp-site at John O Groats is great, fabulous views, good facilities.
Starting to go south we drove on to Ardmair Point, a great site, really helpful staff, our site was close to the facilities and parked overlooking the glorious view across the bay. We bought a cable allowing us to plug in the computer so we could at least watch films. Another great site, well worth a visit.
Sadly that night (at 2am) my wife had a bit of a medical emergency but the local district nurse sorted her out. This led to the decision to cut short the rest of the proposed trip - no electricity, poorly wife and the dog had been bitten by something.
Onwards, trying to contact the ferry company to re-arrange our crossing back to the Isle of Man (home). Next stop was one of the highlights of the whole trip - Reraig caravan and camping site at Skye. Peaceful, lovely pitches, great facilities, nearby Spar shop, on site catering, lovely staff. This is one site I would highly recommend as a stop, near the main road, but very quiet and peaceful. Managed to contact the ferry company and change our trip home. Contacted all the other sites we had booked for the following week and cancelled them.
Onwards - Oban holiday park. Oh dear, what a disappointment, hard to get to, no level pitches even with the levelling ramps, no wifi. No drinking water, no disabled access, lovely views, but we won't go there again.
Next and last stop before the ferry from Heysham was Glendell (or Glendale?) Caravan and Motorhome site in Ayr. What a wonderful place, small but brilliant. Lovely grass pitches, super toilet/shower, Joyce, the owner, was welcoming and very helpful. Definitely we will stay there again.
All in all, Scotland is great, we would choose not to go to the Highlands again, very bleak, spectacular, but bleak with dreadful roads. The Low2lands are wonderful, great scenery, lovely people, good roads. Next time, hopefully, with electricity!

I used to visit this area a lot. I stopped going as since the NC500 route was given a name, it has become much busier.
I visited friends in the area recently and my goodness. It was awful to see what has happened to this once stunning area. The viewpoints smell of human waste, stop-off points are crammed full of motorhomes from late afternoon until mid-morning - so no chance of stopping off at some of the beaches for walks.
It is so sad to see.

We did manage to find some places for walks that were well of the beaten track and inaccessible by motorhome, but otherwise this was a stressful visit.

Id say this is not worth it especially from April to October. Crowds are less Out with this time but weather can be very nasty so it can be bit horrible and cold and daylight is restricted too.

Having lived in the area and been visiting family many times there i can say that the area has been destroyed by its success in 3 ways; Too crowded, filthy and expensive.

Route is far too busy and now filthy. People leaving garbage in laybys, including Human faeces!

Campers parked everywhere in towns too and a lot of irresponsiblity leaving rubbish but also Scotlands local authorities need to get a grip- have a permit system to limit numbers or have better roads and facilities built as area can’t cope with the crowds.

Crowds generally spoil what was the unique thing in this area so the real feel and magic is gone now anyway

You need a moon buggy to successfully get by in some areas now due to the amount of potholes.

Local walks have dog poop and litter everywhere and flies galore in hot weather.

Also prices have increased hugely especially following staycation wave after 2020. Its pricing locals out of their local recreation, cafes and restaurants and there is a slow growing resentment appearing towards tourists which is very uncharacteristic for this part of the world and was complete opposite 5 years ago.

On plus side scenery is good but for the feel of what this area was you have to go in winter when quiet but daylight hours is short so id consider going to another area in Scotland or go on a tour from Edinburgh as this route is really a victim of its success and is a bit misleading these days.

Visit Ham Harbour where the famous Robert Plant opened the repaired Ham Harbour in 1979. There's a plaque on the Harbour wall celebrating this fact.

This route, is long but amazing.
Don't go in peak season, the locals say its a nightmare.
Only let down we had, there are so few trees, large areas are very baron.
We played spot the Wildlife each day, apart from sheep there was very little of anything else.
Don't be put off, this is a journey that is well worth experiencing.

Having worked in the Highlands and Islands on and off for the last three decades visiting as a tourist never occurred to me.However a friend of my wife told us we should visit Achmelvich in Sutherland. I wasn't keen on taking my EV (Kona 64Kw) but my wife persuaded me. From home to Achmelvich is just over 220 miles and I thought we would do part of the '500' as my wife has never been north of Inverness. So it was up and down in a day which took over 14 hours to complete. The scenery as others testify is quite stunning, but not so much when it's pouring rain horizontally in October. But this is Scotland and that is how it is. I was quite surprised how little cafe's etc were open. Evanton where we stopped to re-charge the cafe/restuarant looked like it had been closed for years. The nearby petrol station had a small Spar so we got a hot coffee while we waited for the car to charge to 80%. Then we looped round on part of the 500 then headed to Lochinver where again we stopped to recharge. Again very little cafe wise was open In fact only one that we could see. Then we headed to Achmelvich which was quite stunning with the contrast between white sandy beach and the rocks. After lots of photos we decided it was time to head back to Fife stopping in Kingussie to charge yet again.

This brings me to the point of stating I had an EV. Although I had actually no problem charging on the '500' I found the costs exorbitant. Evanton was 82p per KW and Lochinver was 75p with a 45 minute time limit, no return in 30 minutes. This was for 50KW EVSE which actually supplied power at 36kw which may have been a function of the car due to the battery being over 30% but still very expensive. I totally understand the time limit but the cost was eye-watering. It is four times the cost of charging in Fife and more than double charging in Dundee, Angus or Perthshire. I can understand why no-one was charging except me as for most these costs can only be absorbed by tourists and business people.

I think CPS (Chargeplace Scotland) should have a word with Highland council or whoever owns the EVSE's.

One thing I will point out is when on the '500' there are small single track roads that lead off to elsewhere. These roads aren't particularly well maintained and the edges are crumbling Be wary of going into passing places to let other vehicles pass as sometimes there are huge holes filled with water that can easily burst a tyre. It's happened to me a few times with cars, vans and small lorries. My car like most nowadays doesn't come with a spare tyre and mobile phone coverage at best can be quite patchy (at best). So beware.

I suspect that the '500' is marketed for late spring to the end of summer and that's when most people will travel. Autumn and winter not so much although I have been in the Highlands working during the winter and spotted Motorhomes so there are a few hardy souls.

So next time I'm taking my diesel van. I'll only have to fill up once and I can carry a spare tyre or two with ease.

One of the best Uk road trips definitely worth it. To have the full experience I recommend atleast two weeks to fully appreciate what it has to offer and some hidden gems (did it his in September 2021)
