    For anyone interested in this route, BBC Alba have a new travelogue series, episode 1 heading west out of Inverness is available now on iPlayer. Some interesting "close encounters" with motorhomes if you persevere with the subtitles! Didn't spot any stickers

    ..... it was all about the presenter as usual, 90% her 10% everything else.

    Scary and dangerous are not words I'd associate with the NC500

    Exhilarating, wonderful, unique are.

    Finally available to watch on Thursday evening.
    Sorry to disagree with you Rob but I think "Touringtheworld" is right. I became rather bored by looking at talking heads rather than the scenery.

    Anne Lundon made the point perfectly at 23:35 where she says "Every time we turn a corner there's more to see" but we are not shown the view only yet more of the side of her head, a bit of VW interior but almost nothing through the windscreen.
    Pretty as she is, simply too much of her and her highland expert David Byrne chatting and/or driving from 7:31 to 14:52, nearly a quarter of the running time.

    I don't blame Miss Lundon. The producer or director have put the emphasis in the wrong area.

    But on the positive side nice to know surf buses are reaching Scotland at last.
