Where is The North Coast 500

The North Coast 500 is a circular route of 516-miles and is a scenic route around the north coast of Scotland starting and ending at Inverness CastleNow seriously I assume you already knew thatWell it seems that some folk don't and they are called The North Coast 500 and Visit ScotlandThey have released a new promotional poster for the route as shown below

It is a stunning Photo and it is a photo taken from the Glen Docherty Viewpoint  - but it’s not actually on the route. Even though we have included it in Our Top Ten places to visit but we have stated it is slightly off routeVisit Scotland is also using the image on some of its promotional leaflets for tourist information. Don't get me wrong the view from here is one of the most iconic in the whole of Scotland but surely if they are advertising and promoting the North Coast 500 there are hundreds of places worth showing that are actually on the 'Route"I agree that some places that are slightly off the route as the Glen Docherty viewpoint is should be included on any trip The North Coast 500 is all about promoting the area and that includes places off route. What I don't get is using a view that is in theory not part of the actually routeVisit Scotland also include this image in the 12 Most iconic Views in Scotland and I don't blame them but they still say it is on the North Coast 500Sorry guys back to the drawing board if you want to promote the route use an image from the route…….Maybe next time"
