The Times Travel Doctor recommends North Coast Explorer Tours!


We were delighted to receive a recommendation from Julia Brookes, the Travel Doctor in the ‘Weekend Magazine’ of The Times, in yesterday’s publication (25 April 2020).

Following up on a consumer question about travelling to the North Highlands next year, she proposed heading north from Inverness on the ‘epic North Coast 500’ route. After “nabbing that selfie at the John O’Groats Sign”, she then suggested you “take a tour in a 4 x 4 – the North Coast Explorer does guided routes”.

Although we can provide standard day tour routes of the north east corner, our preference is to provide bespoke tours, meeting your needs and interests – and if Dunnet Head is one of those must see spots (also mentioned in her article), our vehicle can take you ‘off piste’ and show you parts you might otherwise not see!

We also offer multi-day tours across the whole North Coast 500 as well as inland, and can provide recommendations on travel to and from the area, places to stay and those out of the way spots to see unusual wildlife. If you are looking for adventure, getting off the beaten track, staying somewhere remote or just learning all you can about the main NC500 route, we are here to help.

And now is the ideal time for some planning! If you think we can play a part, please do get in touch we would love to hear from you. And in the meantime, stay safe.
