At Gallus Motorhomes, we always encourage our customers to travel the North Coast 500 (NC500) in one of our luxury motorhomes. Furthermore, the NC500 is one of the world’s top coastal touring routes and by renting one of our pet-friendly and luxury motorhomes, you can really experience the wonders of Scotland while having everything in one place. From the stunning scenery and glistening beaches to cultural landmarks of the Scottish Highlands, we guarantee the NC500 will be a motorhome travel experience you will remember forever.
We have compiled our top 5 reasons to drive Scotland’s North Coast 500:
1. Gorgeous scenery
Firstly, when it comes to scenery, the Scottish Highlands are unrivalled. From its dramatic mountains, dense woodlands, glittering lochs and heavenly beaches, the NC500 has got it all. We would recommend adding Rogie Falls, Cape Wrath, John O’Groats & Wick to your NC500 motorhome adventure list. Also, if you’re looking to see the magical Northern Lights, Chanonry Point at Fortrose and Sinclair Bay at Caithness are some of our recommendations. Spending a night under the Northern Lights in one of our luxury motorhomes could not get any better!
2. Discover Scottish history
Want to learn some history on your motorhome adventure around the NC500? Scotland’s history is as exciting and dramatic as the landscape itself. Many castles and ruins are effortlessly located along the NC500 route. Some of our favourites include Dunrobin Castle, Castle Leod and Castle of Mey. Also, Castle of Mey was built between 1566 and 1572 and has actually been used to film the hit TV-show “The Crown” – a must see!
3. Beautiful beaches
We call it the North Coast 500 for a reason. The coastline this incredible route offers is nothing short of spectacular. In addition, you will have plenty of gorgeous beaches to choose from along your motorhome road trip. Our top two recommendations would be Achmelvich Beach and Sinclair’s Bay. Furthermore, Achmelvich Beach offers a luxury experience with its white sand and turquoise water and is a popular hotspot for visitors and locals. Sinclair’s Bay is another spectacle with its never-ending views and soft sand.
4. Family friendly
The NC500 has an endless list of reasons for families to experience the adventure together. The Scottish Highlands tick all the boxes all year round and the NC500 offers a diverse range of wildlife and outdoors activities for all ages. Popular attractions include Wyvis Natural Play Park, Dolphin spotting, and feeding the animals at Castle of Mey. In addition, the gorgeous scenery and spacious beaches are the perfect place for some family time. Why not play some Frisbee on Achmelvich Beach then retire to one of our gorgeous motorhomes for some rest before watching the sunset? We would highly recommend!
5. The motorhome driving experience
