I've done half of it (west coast, north coast, and the inland bit).

Some lovely views and good roads. Expensive petrol up north of Scotland though!

For me, the starting point (Inverness) is about 500 miles away (the same as the Swiss Alps) and the high cost of fuel and accommodation up there, think i'd rather go to Switzerland and Austria.

Likewise. 

I only went as the guy I went with was on a serious budget, and we wild camped everywhere, so just had fuel and food to fund. 

And I'd never been to Scotland before (despite Scottish heritage!) and wanted to see it.

How long actually is this? I might not be looking at it properly but it doesn't give you any distances or driving times.

I'm going to Scotland on Friday so... you know... possibilities :lol:

I think it is 500 miles?

The name "North Coast 500" kinda gives it away :)

I'd like to do it, but it's a long way to get to, although that's part of the trip too, and the weather will be unpredictable. May as well head down to France/Germany.
