    Hi @Kimbo
    Have you searched on the community about the North Coast 500? There have been many comments made under different threads. Not really sure about wild camping along NC 500 but the rule in Scotland is that you can wild camp anywhere as long as you leave the place spotless. So if you fancy stopping anywhere at the end of the day, please do. If it's obvious that it's someone's land, it's polite to ask if you can camp there. 
    The North of Scotland is amazing and attracts many more tourists since the creation of the NC500. Happy holidays!!  :D

    I know only 1 fact, there are grounds in Shieldaig & Torridon meant for camping (may be an honesty box system with a nominal fee). Also please note that wild camping refers to walkers in tents, the outdoor access code mentioned above is only valid for those with a non-motorized means of transport. This blogpost seems like a nice explanation for do's & dont's for motorized access.
