Culture around the North Coast 500 

There is nothing quite like a 'Highlands' welcome. Discover the people and communities that make the route worth remembering. 

Scotland has a distinctive culture and reputation for being one of the friendliest countries. The home the Loch Ness Monster and the Highland Games, offers an unlimited journey of discovery in terms of arts and culture and from the crafty communities where locals create jewellery and stoneware to the culture of the pipe bands, experience it for yourself along the North Coast 500.

If you are lucky enough to travel around the North Coast 500 in July and August, look for the community Galas and Highlands Games where you will see some cabers being tossed and some interesting fancy dressers shaking their charity tins at you... all in the name of community spirit!
