I’ve been planning my dream tour of Scotland for next year and I wondered if anyone (finm) can help me out with an interesting route. I’m starting from The Buccleuch Arms in Moffat and I’m doing the NC500 route up to Thurso which is all sorted. The issue I have is the east coast, from what I’ve read the A9 is best avoided. Has anyone got any suggestions to get me back to Inverness or indeed back to Moffat. I’m planning on doing this section in 1 day but it could be stretched to 2. Thanks.
