NC500? Try our Route 501!

To celebrate the launch of the third expression in the Five Virtues seriesEarth, we decided to go the extra mile and give the famous North Coast 500 route, Scotland’s No.1 coastal adventure, a unique whisky theme. We have created the Tomatin Route 501 so you can bring the Five Virtues to life and take in stunning Scottish landscapes that reflect the elements and names of the five single malt whiskies – Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.

We challenged North Blog adventurer Tristan Cameron-Harper to experience and capture the best of our new route. Starting with a visit to the Tomatin Distillery (of course!) for a tour and tasting session, the popular explorer sampled whisky at some of Scotland’s most picturesque locations and embarked on a series of challenges along the North Coast 500 route.

Will you take on the Tomatin Route 501 challenge?!

How to drive the route…

Jump in your car, hire a car, or even better hire a camper van for the true Route 501 experience -We highly recommend Cairngorm Campers, close to the start of the route at Tomatin Distillery!
