Where to stay in North Scotland. Recommendations?

Post by nickoff » Wed Feb 06, 2019 3:39 pm

4 or 5 of us are going to the North of Scotland in May and instead of the usual camping we would prefer to use hostels and bunkhouses this time. Would welcome any recommendations from fellow bikers. They don't need to be on the NC 500 route as we did that last year. Out of the way places would be welcome, plus info regards must see and contact numbers would be good if possible.
Cheers for any information. Nick.

I’ve stayed here a few times, both for mountaineering and motorcycling. Self catering and hostel accommodation, and right on the NC500.

Rogart as previously mentioned is a good base for a few nights.
