NC500 Plus

8th August – 12th August 2018

£285 rider, £425 rider and pillion.

Passing Places Tours are offering a five night, semi guided tour taking in the NC500, plus a wee bit more.

The trip will appeal to the more adventurous out there. You’ll be sleeping in your tent in some of Scotland’s most scenic areas. We won’t be slumming it too much though, all campsites have toilets and showers. It’s still a holiday after all!

This laid back trip takes in some of the best biking roads in Europe, travelling through stunning landscapes and mind blowing scenery. We’ll be sampling some delicious Scottish produce and visiting world famous destinations. Our route gives the perfect balance of riding and rest, giving plenty time to visit the must see places and relax.

The adventure starts on the 8th of August when we meet at John O’Groats, Scotland’s most northerly town where a three course meal is provided. We’ll finish just south of Fort William with an unforgettable big barbecue and an end of trip party on the 12th. Another three course meal in an award winning pub is included at one of the destinations en route, leaving two spare nights to try out camp cooking. Don’t worry if you don’t fancy cooking. There are good restaurants/pubs beside our campsites.

Semi guided means you have the freedom to do your own thing, or follow our route and ride with the guides. Each day’s ride is around three to four hours not including stops, so there’s plenty time for photos and visits to the various sights on the way. If you’d rather ride on your own, our guides are on hand to suggest routes. Either way, at the end of the day you’ll have great company to have a laugh with over a beer, while reflecting on the days ride.
