NC500 Day Tour  

Day Tour Leaving from Inverness


Details & Itinerary

We go straight into the mountains towards Ullapool. Heading northwards and westwards, this is a tour that builds with beauty at each stage, as we follow parts of the Wester Ross Coastal Trail and North Coast 500.

We have a number of stops, including Corrieshalloch Gorge, Gruinard Bay, Gairloch, Torridon Mountains, Loch Maree, Applecross, Bealach na Ba and Loch Carron. At Gairloch we also have a cafe stop and a short 30-45min 2-3 bay boat trip, with an exciting return run. At Loch Maree, enjoy a short walk/hike along the shoreline or through the forest trails.

Experience perhaps, in our considered opinion, the best of the Highlands, without the crowds, and around almost every corner each sight is more beautiful than the last until you reach the top of the cattle pass, Bealach an Ba at more than 2000 feet high. 

A road that has been voted the most beautiful road in the world by Rough Guide in 2017 and the second half of the North Coast 500.  

A very relaxing tour with a picnic lunch (provided) and a couple of cafe stops at local places for that special hot chocolate made with real chocolate.

This tour can also include Eilean Donan Castle and Loch Ness, if required for an additional charge, subject to consensus of group on the day.
