We only just started the NC500; actually today we drove our first leg: Evanton – John O’Groats. If this day has set the standard then we’re in for something epic. And then, they say driving it anti-clockwise means it only gets better…
We started with our own little tour from Evanton to Bonar Bridge; it’s no part of NC500 but ever so beautiful. Stunning views along the way.
The first stop in Golspie brought us a perfect chocolate pie at the Golspie Inn and loads of sun. And of course we payed a visit to Dunrobin Castle, who’s staff was informed about our group for taking pictures of the cars in front of this most beautiful castle.
After this absolutely stunning view it only got better. Next stop: Dunbeath Castle. Not just for a quick look. No, we were treated with the full package and more. Words can’t describe this part of the day, maybe some photos can.
An unforgetable experience, even more so because we were asked to come inside the castle to see the interior of the castle as well. Since it’s not open for public and it’s the actual residence of the owner, no pictures are shown on this website.
Last stop before we arrived at the Seaview Hotel in John O’Groats, our place to have dinner and to sleep, were the Whaligoe Steps and the restaurant which is at the top of the steps. Another amazing place.
John O’Groats can be a windy, maybe even depressing place at times although it’s special since it’s almost the most northerly place in the UK. But not today. With a setting sun, no netter place to reflect on the things we saw today. Scotland, you’re amazing and so are your people!
