A wonderful drive with many beautiful bays etc Each turn seemed to open up a new and glorious vista. Although mostly a single track road, there are many passing places never very far apart. It gives access to many beautiful sandy beaches.

Set off from Lochinver and thoroughly enjoyed it. After eating lunch at the Kyleseku Hotel (see review), decided to make the return journey to see the views from the other direction. This was also very good but spoilt by two sets of convoys coming in...More

On the NC500 route and well worth ensuring you go through it! Great driving, especially if the weather is lovely, however even with the rain we still enjoyed it. Great views and no need to go speeding through - take it all in :)

All part of the NC500 and yes it's brilliant! Yes, there are too many motor caravans/motor homes but B&Bs are few and far between so taking your home with you makes it easy. It's not a place for learner drivers, but it's not that hard...More

This is a wonderful road but you have to know the width of your vehicle and be happy backing your car if necessary on a road the width of your vehicle. We drove in October and did not meet too much traffic - luckily the...More

In October the number of motorists are somewhat reduced thankfully along this route. It is not for the nervous driver. You need to have your wits about you all the time and not admire the scenery and DRIVE! Watch out for foolhardy Germans who can...More

First time I've ventured along this loop and i was simply stunned. Ever changing but always breathtaking scenery, it was raining when we went but that did nothing to detract from the pure awe experienced. Open your mind, take your time, and take it all...More

For those that were inspired enough to choose to visit Scotland at their own pace via car, this is a fascinating drive. It goes through the charming farmer’s town of Stoer, situated by the sea among amazing scenery. My wife was like in a trance...More

Fantastic drive. Single track road with passing places but if you're careful you will love it as every single corner you turn you are treated to yet another wonderful sight. The mountains ,lochs, terrain and animals are just majestic. We stopped of at Stoer for...More

We're planning a roadtrip coming up from Achiltibuie and then continuing north through Kylesku. We'll be passing through the Drumbeg Loop, but not in an actual loop. Which way is the more scenic drive: hugging the coast, or through Loch Assynt?

The roads that you are planning to drive are very scenic but very slow so allow lots of time. The road from Achiltibuie is single track and very narrow. Lots of blind bends and be prepared to back if you meet a car. The... More
