The scenic and picturesque Scotland. A land that is full of wonder and awaiting for exploration. Last year, in that brief window of "freedom," me and my wife had a great time visiting the Isle of Skye in the Scottish Highlands, but now that the world is slowly opening up again - thanks to the global effort of those whom been working hard to make this happen - it's time to plan ahead for something spectacular.
My wife and I love Scotland. When we first moved here we were amazed by the dramatic landscapes and the warm hearted people living in this part of the world. Edinburgh quickly became our favourite city and with the Highlands being a short drive away we cannot wait to explore more of this wonderful place. Skye - one of the many Scottish Isles - is certainly our top spot where we have spent a fair few days driving around and seeing the rural and rugged beauty of.
This year the one trip we are very much looking forward to is the famous NC500 trip that reaches across 500 miles around the Scottish Isle starting from Inverness around the coast to Applecross and back to Inverness. After watching many videos and reading articles about this trip this year we are very excited to hit the road again and immerse ourselves in this fantastic journey.
Where to start and how to prepare?
Luckily there are plenty of travel guides available online when it comes to the NC500 Road Trip, but far more the best guide book I've come across with is the one created by Highlands2Hammocks. The Scottish couple of Gemma & Campbell are passionate travellers and amazing creators I've been following on YouTube for a while now. Aside from their amazing channel they have a brilliant blog where they offer advice, travel tips and insights to places they visited. They recently released their pocketsize guide that gives you a great breakdown for an 8 day trip. It is very informative, full of great ideas and recommendations, not to mention it won't hurt your wallet either.
After reading their guide I am more than excited to get away and hit the Scottish roads and explore more of the wonders and beauty of this country. Head over to Highlands2Hammocks and get your copy of their guide and explore their amazing content, I cannot recommend them enough.
Personally I am happy and really looking forward to get away more often now to discover more and I cannot wait to get that dose of excitement in my blood pumping. Where are you planning to travel when the time will come? Let us know in the comments below. :)
