How to plan your NC500 road trip, in winter!

Hi everyone!

Earlier this year we spent  a couple of weeks driving the NC500 and exploring the Isle of Skye. We had a blast (despite some unexpected deviations!), but we could also see why so many people have questions about what to expect at that time of year...

Is it safe? Is it going to snow? What do I do if it DOES snow? Is Applecross pass going to be closed? Are B&Bs going to be open, and where can I find them...? 

To help you out in your planning, we thought we'd put together this guide on what you can expect to experience in winter, and to talk about some of the things you will need to do, to ensure you not only have a great road trip, but that you return home safe!
