    This is a fantastic book that details a fantastic journey through some of Scotland’s most inspiring scenery. An absolute joy to read. Makes you want to do it, and makes you feel like you’re already there. Wonderful.

  2. Mat Du Port (verified owner)

    Utterly superb. We have been thinking about making this trip in some form, but this has made up our minds. We love the photography and the YouTube channel that goes with it too. This will be by our sides in our planning and during the trip for sure !

    Absolutely amazing book full of great information. What I like the most is the attention to detail and packaging along with a thank you note, as I’ve bought from others and they don’t right anything. Thank you again Campbell and Gemma what a great book

  7. Robin (verified owner)

    Hi Gemma and Campbell, received your book and am so impressed. What a lovely, interesting and informative book. How useful it will be when next year we return to the NC500 for the second time to check out all the places we missed the first time round. You are to be highly commended for producing this lovely book. We thoroughly enjoyed sharing your journey through your videos. Thank you so much. Looking forward to your next adventure.

    After all the waiting with eager anticipation over the last couple of months, I received my copy in the post only 2 days ago and was not disappointed.
    This book is Simply superb.
    It is extremely well presented and laid out giving all the essential information one would need with additional campervan information such as waste and fresh water locations.
    The quality of their photographs accompanying the script is absolutely incredible too and it just makes the reader yearn to break out and drive there and see it all in the flesh.
    I strongly recommend the book and all I will say is anyone who buys this book, will not be disappointed!

  9. Andy (verified owner)

    The book is a triumph. I’ve just pinched it from my better half, I don’t think she’s getting it back anytime soon.
    Full of superb pictures, and useful information it inspires you to travel the route in a responsible manner.

  10. CarolineS

    What a beautifully produced gem of a book. Worth buying for the photos let alone the useful tips. Can’t wait to get on the road to the NC500

  11. John & Diane

    Well thought out and informative book which is well laid out and easy to use. Photographs are fantastic and really show what a beautiful part of the world the NC500 has to offer. Lots of great information on areas off the beaten track. Completed the route a couple of years ago and the photos / information provided just means we will have to do it all again. Can’t wait

  12. Lindsay Brunton (verified owner)

    For the clueless amongst us, sometimes we need to be taken by the hand and led to exactly where we want to go, or even where we might want to! As a keen amateur photographer who works full time, I don’t have a lot of time to spare planning and faffing around trying to find a location. This book is what I have been looking for in this respect. A lot of love and hard work and dedication has been put into the research for It, as is reflected in Gemma and Campbell’s youtube channel. It’s not so much a how we did it, better still a why we did it!

    The Assynt in the westerly area of the NC500 is a wide open space begging to be explored. If you want to get lost, in the nicest possible term, this is the place for you.

    I havn’t personally driven the NC500, but I have a clearer Idea of what awaits thanks to this painstakingly assembled book. If, like me and my wife, you are planning on doing this trip soon, this book is a compulsory companion.

  13. Karen Lester

    We bought our van in November 2021 after many months of contemplation and started to follow highlands2hammocks for some trip inspiration – I bought your book for my husband for Christmas and we are now planning our first significant trip north to do the NC500! Beautiful book, great routes and some fab tips along the way – great job guys!!!

  14. Lisa Bishop (verified owner)

    The only NC500 guide book you will need. I followed along the YouTube series and couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy, and it did not disappoint. A high quality print, incredible photos and beautifully written.

    I’ve spent my adult life exploring Scotland and have it pretty well covered, I can’t wait to explore lots more new places that I may never have discovered without this book, all the hidden gems are inside. Thank you!

  15. James Crook (verified owner)

    We started following Campbell and Gemma as most people do when they search around YouTube looking for inspiration and entertainment and pretty soon after watching them we realised they had both! topped off with a generous helping of passion for their homeland.
    Campbell and Gemma have crystallised this by managing to reproduce it all in the form of a paperback called “Destination NC500”, there is so much hands on information which helps to answer your questions and then all sequenced together with some of the best photography skills which show off Bonny Scotland at its very best. I was so pleased that I bought a 2nd copy as a gift for my “brand new” motorhoming sister who is itching to discover the NC500 for herself, it doesn’t matter if your a seasoned or complete novice when it comes to visiting Scotland, this book will lovingly guide you every step of the way. A must have on any motorhome book shelf.

  16. Zoe Johnson (verified owner)

    Such a gorgeous book, bought for my fiance as a new year’s Day gift as a promise of adventure. We are looking at this trip for our honeymoon so it was exciting to start looking at everything we will be able to see. The photographs are exceptional and it is so easy to use, pick up and read. Very well done

  17. Sharon mingail (verified owner)

    Planning our first nc500 trip and saw this guide on Fb I took the plunge and bought it, it came quickly was beautifuly packed with a little note which was a lovely thought Thankyou, I’ve only had chance to flick through but in doing so I found it’s a gem, so much advice and tips Thankyou again sharon

  18. Hilary Smith

    Hi Gemma and Campbell. Well have just received your NC 500 and what a delight to read. Superb photography which I appreciate as it is a hobby of mine and one reason I bought your book as well as having lists of various aspects of a trip my hubby Simon and myself hope to make later this year or next once I have retired. I live in Scotland and appreciate what a wee bit of earthly treasure we have to appreciate and protect for future generations .

  19. Deborah Morgan (verified owner)

    I would just like to say I bought the book
    And it was an amazing book very well written and amazing pictures
    Lots of information for people like myself who have not done the nc500
    I would thoroughly recommend this to everyone who wants to travel Scotland
    Great job guys x

    Hi Gemma and Campbell, finally I got your book early this year and I have to say: it’s gorgeous. Very nice pictures and short reports on the locations visited as it should be. In the summer of 2016 I visited the western part of the NC500 together with my son for two weeks, my wife joined us for another week (from Inverness to Glen Affric, Durness, Old Man of Stoer, Ullapool, Isle of Skye, Fort William, Glencoe, Loch Awe an then back home). We would have been very happy the have had your book with us because then we would have been able to see even more and more fantastic spots of this wonderful part of UK/Scotland. Hopefully Covid will allow us to see Scotland and the NC 500 within this year or next year latest and this time your book will be with us. So thank you again for your book, well done both of you. Greetings from Germany from Hermann, Lennart and Gwyn

    Fantastic travel guide, stunning photography, well done Gemma and Campbell. I had been following you on YouTube but had no idea you had a book in the pipeline, it wasn’t till you made your epic trip to the publisher that the penny dropped. I ordered a copy immediately. As a veteran of the NC500 even before it was christened, I love looking and reading about bits I missed and bringing back memories. Having cycled part of it when I was a member of the Fairport Wheelers (Arbroath,) I stayed in the youth hostel in Achmelvich, it’s still there now however it’s not 2s/6d per night!! We didn’t go over Applecross on our bikes but did recently in our van. Keep up the great work👍👍…..

  22. Jonathan Price (verified owner)

    The book is great loads of locations also I like how you scan the qr code and it puts all locations on Google maps straight away for you, the way it was wrapped for delivery felt like a personal touch, I would recommend the book to anybody, also the book is all set in order to go around anti clockwise which is the way I intend in going next month so will work great for me 🙂

  23. Adam P

    This is just the NC500 guide book we have been looking for! We have previously done the NC500 in our car wild camping but will be headed back in our motorhome, so the road trip essentials for each location in the guide including water points and waste disposal is going to be so so helpful. Thanks guys! A comprehensive NC500 guide with stunning photography of so many hidden gems that we can wait to explore. Highly recommended before setting off on your NC500 road trip.

  24. Tracy (verified owner)

    If you haven’t bought this book already you are missing out big time.
    It is a wonderfully informative And beautifully illustrated book, we can’t wait to visit again using this book so we don’t miss anything this time

    This NC500 guild book is the best one we own, we have been to the highlands a couple of times now and your book has highlighted things we have missed. So we are planning another trip up in May with your book as our main source of reference.
    Thank you for making such a good book and we highly recommend your YouTube channel, everyone go subscribe now!!

  28. James Gartrell

    Fantastic book, so much better than all the other Nc500 books on the market. The only one that comes close is the book Photographing Scotland but that’s not specific to the NC500. Very efficient service and good communication. Elegantly packaged. Big help for planning my trip.

  29. Caroline Pacitti (verified owner)

    Wow this was a fabulous Christmas pressie – have been engrossed in it planning using all your information to inspire us! Fabulous photos and excellent evidenced info. Well done guys a brilliant book! Love following you too across social media 👌❤️

    What an amazing book! This really is a must have for a visit to Northern Scotland. Not only does it recommend the most beautiful places to go, with some incredible photographs, it recommends places to stay, places to shop, places to get fuel, water, waste disposal, etc. We will definitely be using this to plan our trip in March. Thank you, Gemma and Campbell.

  31. andy spencer (verified owner)

    Brilliant, both in written informative content and stunning photographs.

    As someone who is planning to travel this route (amongst others in the glorious highlands) it is an ideal ‘ taster’ of things to come.

    Well done Gemma and Campbell.

You tube channel also very good to see how much you both enjoy your adventures. All the best for your adventures in 2022 and beyond.

    Just received my copy of Destination NC500. Even as I opened it, I was impressed by the feel of quality of the materials used for the cover and the pages. The way each area of the NC500 has been presented only inspires me even more to tick off another of my bucket list. It has been presented in such a way that every body, be their preferred accommodation, hotel, caravan/motorhome or tent can get useful information to help their transition around the NC500. Even dividing the tours into three different periods of duration. Well worth its cost and one to keep to hand. Thank you authors.

  35. Peta Lyall (verified owner)

    Love this book, it’s crammed full of fantastic photo’s, excellent information and great advice on how to plan an amazing journey around the Highlands.
    Great memories to cherish forever.

    This is an excellent book which is going to help us plan our trip this year

  37. Terence Rees

    Amazing book. As a keen amateur photographer and a (hopefully) soon to be motorhome owner I ordered this book with the intention of “doing” the NC500 for myself at some point.
    The book is not just pretty pictures but chock a block full of useful information for anyone thinking of visiting the region.
    The images are very professional and you can tell both authors are also keen photographers.
    Thanks guys! Keep the stories coming on your vlogs.

  38. Michael Wyatt (verified owner)

    Destination NC500 is a beautiful book. Such good quality and fantastic photos and information.
    The bit I liked most about my order of this book was the way it arrived wrapped in brown paper and secured with string and details hand written……. a wonderful and personal touch.
    Wishing you every happiness and success for the future.

  39. Mary Donaghey (verified owner)

    The photography is stunning and the pages are printed on top quality paper making it a beautiful book which just transports you to Scotland. Whether you are planning to travel the NC500 or have already done it this book will serve as a guide and an excellent reminder of your travels. Its a book you can dip in and out of as you go. For me the best feature is the lists such as best distilleries, best waterfalls and beaches, where to stay. It covers everything from the history of the NC500 to how to stay safe when wild swimming. It arrived just before Christmas beautifully wrapped in brown paper and string with a personal note which made it extra special. It will be with me on my travels.

  40. Teresa Davis (verified owner)

    It was lovely to receive our copy of Destination NC 500, I love the extra effort for the tiny details of having the book wrapped.
    As a keen explorer of Scotland already, canoeing and wild camping while there, my husband and I were keen to celebrate our 25th wedding Anniversary this year by doing the North coast 500. This guide has given us plenty of food for thought to cram as much in as possible, using the information like fuel stations, places to eat and stay etc etc all of which is laid out so well, along with beautiful photos. I can see we will be having quite the adventure thanks to all the information provided in this book. Thank you

    Perfect book for a perfect road trip. All the information needed and more!! Gorgeous photos showing you aspects of all the trip as well as the finer details covered (e.g petrol stations and shops).

    Your book is fantastic. I am not much of a reader and cannot put this book down. Just bought our 1st ever camper and so excited. Can’t wait to visit some of the spectacular places you have talked about in your book. Well done!

  44. Paul Ross (verified owner)

    Awesome book great information especially for someone like me just waiting to pick up my first campervan at the age of 57 knowing where to go and get rid of waste is brilliant also the rest of the information is amazing.
    The book is great quality too and loved the personal touch with the packaging.
    I am so excited to heading out with an soon and to NC500.

    An absolutely fantastic book, I haven’t been able to put it down, well written and very informative and of course the photos are beautiful. Can’t wait to do this run

  46. Cathryn

    Wonderful book, superb photographs you have made the places come alive. Makes lovely reading and interesting facts on the places you can visit. Useful information on shops, fuel, water, chemical waste points which is essential information when planning a trip in our campervan and also campsites.

  47. Patricia More-Yassin (verified owner)

    Wonderful photography combined with plenty very practical straightforward advice to aid any proposed trip around the NC500. A winner even if not doing the NC500 for just the awesome photographs of the stunning locations contained within the book made from quality products.
    Delivery was very prompt with a lovely personal touch in the packaging. Congratulations offered to you both.

  48. Liam Thomas (verified owner)

    The book got delivered the other day, not had chance to look through it all yet but from the glance and sections I have read is honestly such an amazing and helpful book with so much information that I would not have thought about for when I do my trip. Its also has such helpful but little details like distance between fuel stations which I wouldn’t think about. The images are amazing and has made me want to plan the trip for longer to try and see more of it all.

  49. Susan

    A beautiful book, well thought out and full of useful information. Photography is fantastic and now we can’t wait to travel to the north of Scotland again. Good value for money considering the attention to detail and quality, well done.

  50. Paul (verified owner)

    In preparation for my own NC500 adventure I first came across Campbell & Gemma’s YouTube videos. That gave me the insight into the hard work and love that went into creating this book. I had to buy it, and was not disappointed! The details given, with the accompanying photos, takes you dreamily to your destination. The structure of the book makes it easy to follow and create your own ideas of where to visit and how to spend your time on the route. This is a beautiful book and required reading before you head for the North Coast.

  51. Alan Freeman (verified owner)

    WOW…. so many beautiful pictures, fantastic information and really great quality, I’ve brought several NC500 books and this is far the best by a long way, it should be known as the NC500 bible, no one should consider the North Coast trip without first reading it, well done both.

  52. Marie Hadwin (verified owner)

    I first came across Gemma and Campbell on Instagram and found that they had written this very in depth guide to the NC500. I have been to Sutherland and and stayed at Kylesku 3 times and explored some of the surrounding areas but want to explore more I thought there guide would be of great help and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. The book is full of stunning pictures of the wonderful beaches, castles and other places of interest to visit along the NC500 it is well set out and easy to follow. The book is of great quality and you can tell a lot of love and hard work from Gemma and Campbell has gone into writing this book. Would highly recommend this book if you are planning on doing the NC500.

  53. linda (verified owner)

    Mine arrived last week, just started reading it, great tit bits on where to get fuel ⛽️ food etc., Love the photography…. Superb book 👏🏻👏🏻

  54. Sheena and Alec

    We’ve just finished reading your Destination NC500 book, and it’s full of amazing photos and information. I hope you keep on travelling! You work so well together as a couple, a great match. We’ve visited the Highlands on holiday, along with Skye, Mull, Arran, the Outer Hebrides and Taransay… and every area has its own unique landscapes. Our travels have covered quite a lot of the NC500 too. The only comment I would make about the book is a lack of maps, which could be useful.

    I was born in Glasgow (but we moved South when I was 3). But my daughter is married to a Scot and they live in Glasgow now. They met on Taransay as they were both working in TV on the Castaway 2000 series. And they got married on the beach there too. Now they have a family, and a Scottish daughter who Gemma reminds me of.

    Thank you for sharing your vanlife travels … we look forward to every one.

  55. Sheena and Alec

    Gemma and Cameron are perfect van lifers, and provide the best van life travels. Their book Destination NC500 is worth every penny! This great couple certainly know what they’re doing and it’s a pleasure watching their channel. Well done!!! And please keep travelling!

  56. Marie Hadwin (verified owner)

    Absolutely fantastic book and guide to the NC500. Gemma and Campbell have used their personal experiences of the NC500 and put it in an easy to follow guide.

  78. Darrell (verified owner)

    Really informative and helpful guide book that we are looking forward to using next year when we do the NC500.

    For my own personal viewpoint if you wanted to take your guidebooks to the next level so to speak, what about producing a guidebook that also comes with a map? As travellers when we read about something we are instantly drawn to seeing where is actually is, doing this on a physical map is sometimes a lot easier than looking at a page in a book or on a website. I appreciate it adds costs but for me a travel boom and map go hand in hand is a very social way to palm your trips with friends especially of the map can fit into the book for safe keeping
