North Coast 500

Cycling from Inverness up to Dunnet Head

20th-26th September 2020

Cycling this stunning route in the Autumn promises to be a treat.  This part of the North Coast 500 route, up the west coast of Scotland is both beautiful and challenging.  A perfect context for exploring our edges, we’ll be following the trail from Inverness, up the west coast, enjoying the wildness of coast and mountains.

We’ll be accompanied by a support van with a guide.  It takes our luggage, food and our guide can help with simple repairs.  If you’ve found the edge of your cycling endurance, you can also hop on!

Our adventure partner is Pedal Nation, who have created a bespoke trip for The Get Out!  Our trip ends at Dunnet Head, rather than John O’Groats.  See map below.

For more details about the NC500 see their standard itinerary here, Pedal Nation.
