Description

Our 500 mile North Coast 500 around the Scottish coastline is a very challenging ride but the spectacular scenery that you will cycle past is worth every pedal.

We will be following the official North Coast 500 route as far as Melvich but, for a number of safety reasons, we have chosen not to continue with the official route past this point as it takes us on the very busy A9 dual carriageway. Instead, we have chosen a very quiet and safe route back to Inverness via Dornoch.

Travelling by train and arriving into Inverness, the capital of the Scottish Highlands, gives a taster of the countryside that will be on offer during the following week. Plan to arrive the night before the tour departs and you will have chance to savour the sights and sounds of the city that is the starting point of what will become a memorable cycling adventure into the Far North of Scotland.

Highlights:

  • Rolling out from Inverness Castle on the first morning of the tour
  • Spectacular scenery of Strathconon Forest
  • Gazing at the Isle of Skye from Shieldaig
  • The amazing climb up the Bealach na Ba
  • The beautiful smell of the sea at Applecross
  • The stunning view of Upper Loch Torridon from Badan Mhugaidh viewpoint
  • Counting the species of whales and dolphins seen by whale watchers close to Gairloch
  • The amazing ride from Rhiconich to Durness
  • Sighting the Atlantic Ocean at Bettyhill
  • Looking for a hen harriers in Strath Halladale
  • The final celebration in Inverness
