The North Coast 500 – Part 6
The final episode of our epic 516 miles journey along the famous North Coast 500 route from Inverness to the north of Scotland on the east coast and returning to Inverness down the fabulously scenic west coast. We visited the Corrishalloch gorge near Ullapool in Episode 5 and stopped overnight at Dundonnell in a quaint B&B. This final route takes us from Dundonnell, along another wonderfully scenic route through Poolewe, Gairloch, Sheildaig, Applecross, Achnasheen and Beauly to mention just a few of the beauty spots we pass through. We also travel down the Bealach na Ba, a treacherous winding mountain road with hairpin bends and steep descents. The views, however, are amazing and this experience follows us all the way.
There are amazing stories on our journey from 2nd World War Collection points for the Russian convoys to amazing tropical planted gardens in a most inhospitable part of the world in winter. There’s scenery, fabulous beaches, towering mountains and deep lochs. There is so much to cover and we will just scratch the surface sufficiently for you, perhaps, to come and see it for yourself.
Let me, John Harbour, transport you on a wonderful journey and, hopefully, you will be able to experience it yourself one day. If you cannot come to Scotland, for whatever reason, then sit back, relax and let you imagination wander, as I bring Scotland to you.
