    hi
    you can get down virtualy any road in a van. they are always suitable
    for the bin wagon and bulk gas delivery truck. even the forest tracks
    can handle a long artic to carry tree trunks. the other week i went across
    to ardintoul bay from bernera on a unmade road i thought this was scary
    mainly because there was no passing places and a very steep section where my
    wheels spun. i stayed the night and next day a skip wagon pulled in; the large
    type which pulls the skip on the back.

    Did it last year in a mwb conversion, but encountered a bunch of very long motorhomes.

    I would say that there's only one place that was quite a tight fit but there was a motorhome that had come through just before we got there, and it must have been 7.5-8m long Winnebago. Lots of the roads are narrow and single tracks but not tight (if that doesn't sound like a contradiction).

    Just don't do what some of them were doing and assuming that as they were bigger they had right of way everywhere, and not pulling in on their side when they had the pull-ins.

    Also, sheep, lots of them on the road in places.

    Also, do it do it do it do it. Drove the Alps the year before, and whilst bigger scale than the NC500 (and very cool), the NC500 was better. Can't believe I waited until I was 40 to drive it. Hmmm, bike next year methinks.

    We did it in a 21 footer, only once did we regret going down a side road and that was because of over hanging branches. The main route is fine but you do need to take extra care on occasion.
    When I was younger I felt like a man trapped inside a woman’s body. Then I was born.

    Just take your time doing the NC500, remember it's a holiday, unlike some who think it's a racetrack.

    We usually do our Scotland trips during the winter.

    There is much less traffic, you don't get the midges and the scenery looks spectacular in snow.
    God bless Colonel Sanders. Marvellous man!

    October onwards gives a variety of colours, even wet weather shows spectacular waterfalls and water courses never seen in dry weather.
