Route 500

Hi everyone,
We are planning to do Route 500 next June.  I have done lots of reading up and am a member of a caravanning fb page.  Getting loads of mixed messages about doing the route (avoiding 2 routes that are not suitable for towing) with a caravan.  Last year we did North/South Uist, Harris and Lewis with the caravan and found travelling around with the wobble box attached was easy.  Some people are saying leave the caravan at the start of the route and get B&B's (don't see the point of taking the van) and some are saying that the roads are fine with care.  Does anyone have any experience of towing a caravan around the route.  Many thanks

    @Rosieboo I don't have experience with a caravan myself, although I have seen other caravan users on parts of the North Coast 500 route. North Coast 500 have a Facebook page  so if you posted the above on their page I'm sure you would get lots of good and helpful advice. Whichever way you decide to do NC500 the scenery is stunning. Hope this helps.

    I don't do caravans but I do know the roads up there. To be honest some of the roads 'with passing places' are barely wide enough for 2 large cars to pass one another at the passing places! But that being said, you'll be fine - what's the point in an adventure if you don't have 1 or 2 wee challenges ;-)

    Bespoke tours.
