Description

The North Coast 500 is a wonderfully published guidebook by Charles Tait, from its stunning photographs to extensive information and tips throughout. Established in 2015, the NC500 has become one of the most popular coastal road trips in the world thanks to its spectacular views and historical landmarks. 

Scotland's "Route 66"

This tourist route takes in over 500 miles (900km) of the UK's most stunning scenery. Known to many as Scotland's "Route 66", the circular tour traverses through the beguiling North Highlands of Scotland, starting and ending at Inverness. On the way it passes mountains, glens, beaches, cliffs, castles, ancient sites and picturesque villages. Most people come to experience the natural beauty and famous Scottish wildlife. Many places of interest are described; some iconic, others less well known. There is a big range of interesting archaeological and historic sites to visit but only a small number of prime organised visitor attractions. Several detailed, hand selected itineraries are suggested throughout this guide for those who want to make more of their journey.

Charles Tait Guidebooks

Charles Tait Guidebooks are photographed, researched, designed and written by the author. Being an Orcadian photographer and travel writer, Charles Tait has been publishing guidebooks based on the natural and cultural history of the Highlands and Islands since 1991. The aim is to create authoritative, readable, informative, easily assimilated handbooks to each area. Each book is extensively illustrated with photographs by Charles Tait, as well as Ordnance Survey maps, old photographs and prints. The guides include introductions covering natural history, archaeology, history and the economy. The Gazetteer covers each parish and island in depth and is followed by information on transport, local services, a bibliography and a detailed index.

Guidebooks for Scotland in the Charles Tait series also include publications on the north Highlands, and the Isle of Skye.
