After two amazing days in the Isle of Skye, our route continued to the north of Scotland. We made part of the North Coast 500, a circular route of 516 miles (830 km) that runs through the northern counties of Inverness-shire, Ross, Cromarty, Sutherland and Caithness, starting from the famous Eilean Donan Castle and finishing two days later in Inverness. It was an exhausting trip, but we also enjoyed some of the most beautiful landscapes in the Scottish Highlands.
Our first day on the North Coast 500 was the longest on the road. We traveled from Breakish, in Skye, to Skerray. We didn’t take as many detours as I would have liked to see the coast and the lighthouses on the way, but I was rewarded with some amazing views. And I finally saw something that was eluding me and I was looking forward to it: wild deers!
