Above is a map of Scotland’s North Coast 500. Or, rather, it is a map with some markers of some places in Scotland.

We drove most of the North Coast 500 pre-pandemic — we missed a few of the “official” NC500 stops and added a few of our own (one of these being that we started in Edinburgh due to the airfare but had the happy experience of being there for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

We’ve taken writing our posts for this series at a…leisurely? pace. But our intent is to get back to it. We got a bit off-course with our map as we changed the routing features on this website, so I’m not sure if I’ll add poly-lines of our route back in.

For now, the map consists of stops on what was (or is) the “official” NC500 route. These will be the green marker with the Scotsman on them. The NC500 used to put out a “passport” where you could get a stamp to mark that you had visited all of the stops.

But as I get going again, my intention is to add markers for the other places we’ve visited or that we’d recommend along our route and then open the map for visitor generated markers for things we might have missed.

Our North Coast 500 Posts

Below is the list of posts we’ve written so far. Mostly, it’s in reverse chronological order — that is from oldest to newest. Yes, it should start with the “planning your adventure” post, but we had written a post of a cemetery along the way that we found particularly interesting. Not all places we mention here are on the “official” NC500 route, but all are places worth visiting.

    Amidst Old Tombstones at Kirkmichael Trust Cemetery

    The Kirkmichael Trust Cemetery in the Scottish highlands has done some serious restoration work, bringing old medieval tombstones into a restored church building for preservation and display. The stones outside, as well as the small mausoleum, are also worth a visit if you like old cemeteries — its just a bit off the main itinerary…
