NC500

The NC500 stretches from Inverness, along the North West, North and North East Coastlines and you will be able to follow it from Inverness to Wick as you travel, and from Wick to John O' Groats and as far as Tongue during this excursion, allowing you to see some of the most spectacular coastal scenery that Scotland has to offer. Admission is included to the Strathnaver Museum, which is a treasure trove of unusual objects and gripping stories all presented by friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff. The ancient province of Strathnaver was the scene of some of the most brutal acts of the Highland Clearances.

Fort George

As you travel from Wick to Montrose, via Dornoch, entry is included to the imposing Fort George, the mightiest artillery defences in Britain, which provides a fascinating look into 18th century military life. Also visit the Highlanders Museum, the second largest in Scotland before travelling through Royal Deeside and the pretty village of Ballater.
