Cant wait to come over

Is it stupid of us to already have set up a count down clock for our trip next march to Scotland... We will be there for 6 weeks and will travel the NC500 in a rented camper van... We are even going to look at buying a bed and breakfast home... One that we can rent to someone and in return they get to keep most of the bnb profit.... I cant wait to go back home

    are you going to Isle of Arran? Well worth a visit. Most accessible island from the central belt so once you have completed your NC500 route then stop by!

    Sorry Aaron, took a while to answer... I do believe so, i think there is a distillery to be seen there... we are hiring a 4wd and travelling at our leisure, and will be staying at Air B&B or normal BnB... We were going to hire a campervan, but decided against it

    Hi @lushnpops

    While you are up on the north coast, do take a ferry trip to Orkney from John O'Groats or Stornoway from Ullapool.

    Agree! Ullapool to Stornaway is a favourite ferry crossing of mine.  Make sure you get off the beaten track, go to the Summer Isles above Ullapool and Cromarty on the Black Isle above Inverness.
    Enjoy!

    Six weeks! Brilliant! It is always good to have things to look forward to. Is this your first visit to bonnie Scotland?
