How to get there
The North Coast 500 begins and ends in Inverness at Inverness Castle; perched on top of a hill within the city centre, this majestic fortress offers unparalleled views over the capital of the Highlands. Inverness is well-served by transport links, whether you’re flying into Inverness Airport or arriving by train. If you’re driving to the starting point, it’s a 3.5-hour drive from both Glasgow and Edinburgh, and a two-hour drive from Aberdeen.
If you’re keen to try something a bit different, Ecosse EV offers all-electric Tesla supercars for both self-drive rental and chauffeur driven tours.
