The NC500 is the most stunning cycle route in the world. 516miles of breath taking views. Starting in Inverness, we will book your accommodation starting on the first day of you bike ride and transfer your baggage to each stop all the way back to Inverness. We offer any package to accomdate your cycling ability, yes, even a 14 day cycling package if that's what you want to do, but our two most popular is 5 days cycling and 7 days cycling.
Although we say the North Coast 500, we don't recommend the A9, it's a fast wide road and can be very busy at times. Our preferred route is coming through the middle of Scotland via Altnaharra, Lairg, into Tain and onto the Nigg ferry to the Black Isle which will take you down to Inverness. We call this route, "The Best of the North". It's an incredible ride, taking in the West coast, followed by some incredible roads through the middle which is incredibly barren but beautiful as well.
If you are wanting to do the official North Coast 500, we are happy to accomodate this too. but once you get over Dornoch Bridge, we then take you right to Edderton and will then start cycling parrallel to the A9 all the way to Inverness.
