NC500

Post by nelly111s » Wed May 17, 2017 10:15 pm

Jono and others have spoken about the North Coast 500 (NC500). There's a programme on BBC Alba at the moment, in 4 parts, driving round it. It's in Gaelic, with English subtitles. The first show was on yesterday and there's a couple of repeats in the next few days.

Worth watching for a couple of reasons. I wish I'd learned Gaelic at school!

Have done most of the route in my time with the JCW Mini, Applecross is spectacular and some of the roads are a drivers delight, would highly recommend it. Plus if you do it in a Lotus, with the handling that comes with it .......................well it speaks for itself :-)

mate of mine did it last year and did it anticlockwise, as it seems most folks do it clockwise for some reason, gets busy.

I've done most of it myself, but never together. The only place I've not been is north of Ullapool to Cape Wrath in the NW. Did some of it "back in the day" in a MkII Escort. HeHe.
I'd probably do it anticlockwise - save the best bits for last!

Didn't meet the presenter on my travels last time though.
