The North Coast 500 is a popular 516-mile scenic route around the very north of Scotland. Part of the North Coast 500 will take you along the north coast from Thurso to Durness or vice versa, depending on your direction. There's not a huge amount of things to do between Thurso and Durness, but the landscape does change quite a bit from being mostly flat on the east coast to having beautiful dramatic hills and gorgeous white sandy beaches. This is reflected in the 'things to do' section of this blog post, which is filled with beaches, walks and hikes. The scenery is a real treat so make sure you make regular stops along the way to enjoy the views. It's just going to get better as you head down the west coast too!

This is a comprehensive guide detailing the route from Thurso to Durness including things to do, places to eat and places to stay helping you to plan your best NC500 trip.
