‘For Scottish travel it doesn’t get better than North Coast Journey, an eco-friendly, common-sensical, well-researched foray around the locale of the North Coast 500 and beyond’ – The Scotsman

‘A beautiful compendium of all that the North Highlands has to offer. Comprehensive, yet beautifully presented. Highlighting curiosities and emphasising the importance of respecting the locals, Brigid Benson provides a detailed guide on how to navigate this increasingly popular area’ – Scottish Field

This is the essential guide to the north of Scotland, on a route which begins in Inverness, weaves westwards to Applecross and then northwards towards Torridon. From Ullapool it leads to the most northerly points in Britain, passing by Caithness and John o’ Groats before heading south again through Dingwall and to Inverness. In addition to stunning mountains, moors, lochs and beaches, the route also features exquisite towns and villages, castles, distilleries, breweries, natural wonders and wildlife.

Brigid Benson, who knows the road intimately, divides the route into manageable chunks, suggesting where to discover history, observe wildlife, meet great local characters, shop at quirky stores, taste outstanding food, drink in friendly bars and cafes, stand in awe of amazing sights, and recommending places to picnic, swim, surf, walk and stargaze. And great places to camp and stay. She also draws attention to attention to potential pitfalls, offering useful advice on single-track roads, fuel, car problems, planning realistic itineraries, and much more.

Brigid Benson is the bestselling author of 52 Weekends by the Sea and 52 Weekends in the Country, both published by Penguin.
