Motorhome Holiday Inspiration: The NC500


Just because the summer holidays are over, that doesn’t mean to say that motorhome holidays are! 


Especially when you can make great savings with Abacus Motorhome throughout the month of September… 


So in the spirit of great savings all month long, and taking advantage of those September holidays, today we’re going to be bringing you our September holiday inspiration - the Scottish NC500! As the days start to get colder and the nights start to get darker, there’s a mystery to Scotland we highly recommend exploring. 


The Scottish NC500 

Introducing Scotland’s ultimate road trip… The NC500! Have you ever wanted to explore Scotland, but didn’t know where to start, or what to do? This really is the perfect road trip, covering beautiful coastal scenery, outstanding mountain views and quaint little villages - the opportunities are endless.  


This really is one of the world’s most beautiful road trips for a reason!* 


Places to visit 

Enhance your experience and tailor your visit to suit everyone - we meant it when we said the opportunities are endless! Whether you’re going for history, heritage and archaeology, or want a food and drink tour of Scotland, the choice is yours. 


This route covers six distinct areas across the country: Black Isle, Caithness, Easter Ross, Inverness-shire, Sutherland and Wester Ross. But there is so much hidden within each of these regions, it’s hard to know where to begin! 


As there really is so much to explore, we recommend that you try and categorise the things that you want to do. Are you going with the family? There are plenty of outdoor, wildlife activities, such as world-class mountain biking or something more simple like rockpool exploring. For the foodies, there is the opportunity to visit the Glenmorangie distillery or the kitchen garden of the highlands - local delicacies are abundant!  


Motorhome travel 

The fun and beauty of the NC500 is only heightened with travelling by motorhome. You will always be immersed in the experience! However, this does come with an added responsibility and extra care that needs to be taken when travelling around this route. 


The good news is that these tips are generally the same for all motorhome travel, so if you’re an experienced traveller, it should come to you with ease! 


Firstly, keep your distance when travelling. You are operating a larger vehicle, and will often come across smaller roads, so it is important to keep your distance, and don’t speed. The winding mountain roads can be a challenge, so don’t make it harder by trying to speed through them! 


One of the great sights on this trip is witnessing the beautiful wildlife first hand. But this also leads to animals on the road - so be cautious when driving!

You can get up to 25% off when you book a motorhome with a pick-up or drop-off date between now and the end of September 2022. All you need to do is enter the promotion code SummerSaver during your booking to claim!
