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.
Our new window display at the Ullapool Bookshop this month features the North Coast 500 , including Maps, postcards (showing the whole route), the new book ‘Exploring the NC500 – Travelling Scotland’s Route 66’ by David M Addison, and Scotland’s Landscapes books on Ross & Cromarty and Caithness & Sutherland from Ness Publishing (covering the whole route). Guide books are also arriving later this month.
The Ullapool Bookshop is now open until 6pm Monday – Saturday and from 10am-5pm every Sunday.

Book: MV Isle of Lewis by Mark Nicolson (price £9.99)
The Isle of Lewis was constructed by Ferguson Shipbuilders of Port Glasgow on the Clyde, launched by royalty and assumed the Ullapool to Stornoway service at the end of July 1995. She was the first truly ‘route-specific’ vessel, planned in high detail for a route from which she never wavered. This book tells the story of a vessel which has risen above all odds, as well as featuring details of MV Suilven and the current Stornoway-Ullapool ferry the CalMac Ferries MV Loch Seaforth.
