Exploring the NC500 by David M. Addison

Travelling anti-clockwise, David M. Addison seeks his kicks on Scotland’s equivalent of Route 66. Otherwise known as NC500, the route takes you through five hundred miles of some of Scotland’s most spectacular scenery. No wonder it has been voted as one of the world’s five most scenic road journeys.

There are many ways of exploring the NC500. You can drive it, cycle it, motorbike it or even walk it, even if you are not one of The Proclaimers! And there are as many activities, places of interest and sights to be seen along the way as there are miles.

This is a personal account of the author’s exploration of the NC500 as well as some detours from it, such as to the Black Isle, Strathpeffer and Dingwall. Whatever your reason or reasons for exploring the NC500 may be, you should read this book before you go, or take it with you as a vade mecum.
