I left Tongue early morning, I had a long drive before me and also wanted to see as much as possible along the NC500. The NC500 is a scenic route along Scotlands North Coast. The first half along the East coast brought me from Inverness to Tongue and now I was going to see a part of the West Coast.
Driving along Loch Eriboll was the perfect start for this scenic journey – there was no traffic and I could just enjoy the view on all sides!
Loch Eriboll is about 16 km long and used as a deep water anchorage. The Royal Navy sometimes used the loch for training, especially during World War II. The surviving 33 German U-boats formally surrendered here in 1945, ending the Battle of the Atlantic.
I didn´t see any ships, but stunning views!
