Sounds amazing, what an adventure.

We didn't do the NC500 but did go us to the Highlands last summer with our 2 labs and the caravan! It's beautiful and we had fantastic weather. Was interesting taking the van along lots of single track roads (especially with logging lorries coming the other way!)
We stayed at Loch Naver and it was beautiful, wild and remote.

Remember a midge net and repellant if you are inland, wasn't so bad near the coast but we certainly needed them.

The Dogs loved the beach at Dunnet Bay (just West of John O'Groats), ideal for a swim or paddle.

I also saw the program about the Torrigan hotel, and have been thinking about the NC500, I quite fancy doing it in a motorhome, although I don't know what the roads are like for inexperienced motorhome drivers!.
I look forward to reading your report.

Some of it (even the A roads) is single track with passing places. It is doable in a motorhome but not for the inexperienced I'd say.

Iíve done a lot of campervan trips in Oz and NZ, so will try to judge it for you. I have heard a lot of the roads are narrow and windy, but hopefully Iíll be fine in my Seat Leon

Thatís a great little outing. Urquhart Castle is a lovely ruin - can you get off the boat there for a wander?

I hope you spot Nessie - we werenít so lucky!

I donít think so on this trip, as I need to get up to Wick, so went for a 2 hour boat trip rather than the 4. But next time x
