North Coast 500- potential trip


I was wondering what peoples opinions are on the likelihood of being able to do the NC500 this summer would be? (I am a resident of Scotland and would be going with 1 other person from my bubble). I know that tourism is beginning to open up from mid July, however, wasn't sure if there was any insight into how feasible doing the trip in perhaps August when things are a little more settled would be. 
Any advice or guidance would be appreciated.

    Hi @Kirstys1221

    Thank you for your question regarding heading off to do the NC500 in August. As you can imagine this is an ever changing situation that we cant predict. At the moment as you will be aware we are still restricted to travelling only 5 miles. This is however set to change and like you say things are beginning to open up, this is just the phase we are at now and a test to see how we get on with keeping Covid-19 at bay. Doing the NC500 would require you to have accommodation booked so it is highly advisable that you do your research and contact the accommodation providers directly to see where they stand on opening up and what their policies are that they will have set in place etc. Some, sadly may not be able to reopen after this and others may choose to wait a little bit longer than government guidelines.

    I hope that helps you but please feel free to get back to us if you need any more help

    Kind Regards
