This 500 mile tour around the Scottish coastline in 7 days is a tough ride. It is perfect for the sportive rider, looking to test him or herself on some of the most challenging and spectacular scenery that the United Kingdom has to offer.

Starting from Inverness, we will be following the official NC500 route as far as Thurso and then choosing a very quiet and safe route back to Inverness via Strath Halladale, Strathnaver and Altnaharra. For a number of safety reasons we will not be using the A9 south of Wick for the return ride to Inverness.
