Nc500

Got back home last night after a long bank holiday weekend on the NC500 with five friends, one of whom was also in an SLK.

It's a fantastic route - a mixture of highland single track roads, fast sweeping A roads, mountain passes and everything in between!

Some great food stops, and some amazing views. SLK perfomed really well, the short compact nature of it suits the roads. One of the friends was in an SL400.

Yes, @Garfalls introduced several of us to the delights of the NC500 last year.
Roads, as you describe.
Seeing Bentley and Aston Martin convertibles coming at you down the single tracks elicits a giggle.
The huge RVs elicit a groan.


Totally recommend it to anyone who has yet to experience it.


It is on our tour list for a repeat sometime in the next couple of years.
