Why the NC500 is the Ultimate Scottish Road Trip

If a driving holiday around Scotland is something that you’ve had to put on hold for the last few years, or it’s on your travel bucket list, make sure you opt for the very best itinerary in Scotland, the ‘North Coast 500 – Scotland’s ultimate road trip’.

The Ord Arms hotel is privileged to be located on the southwestern part of this incredibly beautiful route, which encompasses 516 miles, to be exact. Many people choose to start and end around Inverness and depending on the pace at which you want to complete the route, usually takes about 9 or 10 days to complete. We are located just a 20-minute drive away from Inverness, away from the hustle and bustle, yet near enough to give you time to explore this gorgeous town.

The North Coast 500 is an iconic drive that gives a chance to discover, adventure and immerse yourself in experiencing Scottish culture up close and personal. You’ll meet the friendliest of people along the way, enjoy visitor attractions that you never even new existed and spend time off the beaten track holidaying at a pace that suits you and your travel colleagues.

Choosing the Ord Arms Hotel as a base for a couple of nights at the start and/or end of your driving itinerary, you won’t be disappointed. Our hotel is long-established in the village of Muir of Ord with plenty of space for parking cars, motorcycles, bikes and trailers. We have 8 comfortable rooms to choose from, and a legendary cooked breakfast on the menu each morning. Rooms are in demand especially during the summer months. The restaurant is currently open Friday and Saturday from 5.00pm, closing times may vary and Sunday 12 noon until 4.00pm. Please do stop by, we’d love to see you.
