The Slow Road - From Torridon to Red Point Beach

Ep. 14
'The Slow Road' tells the story of driving down the North Coast 500 - but mostly not following it. Instead, we explore some of the detours along the way.First, we drive from Torridon to Lower Diabaig, crossing a mountain pass that makes the hair stand up at the back of your next. Then, we leave the road behind to go for a hike in the Beinn Eighe mountain range. Finally, we drive down another detour - the winding coastal road to the beach at Red Point.This episode shows that it's worth to slow down and tackle short sections of the North Coast 500 in-depth, instead of attempting to drive the whole loop in a few days.After the story, I'll tell you some of my top tips for driving the North Coast 500 responsibly.Are you ready?
