North Coast 500 : Have children, will travel

by Bronagh Braidwood

This year we decided to drive the new NC500 coastal road, the North Coast 500. I organised a week’s recce, packed my boys into our old van and off we went. The first thing to strike us was the difference in the landscape as we traveled from the flat lands of Caithness where the sky dominates, to the spectacular mountain ranges in the West.
