1) The North Coast 500, Scotland
Becoming more popular - but still unlikely to ever get ‘busy’ - the North Coast 500 should be on every biking bucket list.
It was created in 2014 and runs for 516-miles, navigating the Scottish coast. A modern adventure bike such as a Kawasaki Versys or a super tourer such as a Yamaha FJR1300 would be the ideal mount for this, comfortable enough to enjoy the spectacular views over the Highlands.
The official route starts and ends at Inverness Castle, taking in Ullapool, Durness, John O’Groats, Dornoch and Inverness itself. The North Coast 500 website even has a ready-made ‘Motorcyclist’s Itinerary’ with an eight-day schedule, so what are you waiting for?
