Wake up to views like this!

The NC500 is one of the most popular route choices with our customers. Although there are better alternatives (contact us for more info!), it is a great ‘off the shelf’ option. 

The route stretches 500 miles across the Highlands and showcases some of Scotland’s most beautiful coastal scenery.  The route follows the main roads around the north coast of Scotland taking in the white sandy beaches, magnificent mountains and quaint villages.  Whether you’re going the distance or traveling a small stretch of this magical route, you are bound to discover endless adventure around every turn.

It is a route best enjoyed at a leisurely pace, with lots of hidden gems to seek out along the way. Traveling in an ‘overland’ fashion with everything you need in your vehicle, including your accommodation, gives you the ultimate flexibility to take your time and stop when and where you wish.

Along with a fantastic roof tent from iKamper, we provide a comprehensive list of kit; everything you need for an extended Highland adventure. Our Defenders feel right at home in the narrow twisting roads of the Scottish Highlands, with great visibility thanks to the high driving position, plenty of power to pull you up the steep hills and high profile all-terrain tyres for when the road surfaces get rough.
