Take your time and really get to know the hidden corners of Scotland’s world-famous touring route on this epic fortnight-long road trip.

Having completed the 513-mile ‘North Coast 500‘ circuit many times, we’ve tapped in to our experience and created this appealingly lengthy road trip. Take a break from behind your own wheel and spend a day with a private guide uncovering the historic wilderness of Caithness and Sutherland. We’ll also include a boat trip off the rugged west coast. All in all, it’s the perfect way to discover some of Scotland’s wildest scenery and most remote locations while getting close to the area’s dramatic history and culture.
