The art of touring is alive and well in the Highlands, particularly here in Torridon where we are delighted to be part of Scotland’s spectacular new North Coast 500 route (NC500).
The national media have named it Scotland’s own Route 66 but really where else can compare with the culture and heritage of Scotland’s northern coastal route not to mention the famous sights you glimpse along the way such as magnificent Suilven, Dunrobin castle or the beaches at Achmelvich and Dornoch?
The official NC500 route begins in Inverness, heading west to Kyle of Lochalsh, up the scenic west coast to Durness, across the most northerly stretch to John O’Groats then back down to Inverness again.
Best of all, however, the 500-mile route goes right past our front door, which makes The Torridon the ideal base for a few days’ exploration along the way.
