Ratings and Reviews
Not your usual travel app!
If you’re going to download a travel/tourism app for an excursion into the Highlands, this is the one to go for. Packed with crucial info about local attractions and services, there are also various themed routes you can follow (for example if you want to see lots of castles!) or you can create your journey around specific sites you’d like to see, which gives you more independence and can cater to your individual needs. The app highlights must-see locations, but also makes it easy to discover hidden gems and build them into your travels.
The thing that really sets it apart for me though is the audio content. The app is filled with local music, as well as folklore and stories which have been passed down through generations of people living and working along the NC500. We were really excited to do this famous route, and the audio channels made a long family car journey with 3 kids and a dog much more bearable! Will be going back next year!
Made my holiday!
So glad I downloaded this before travelling the North Coast 500 route. The recommendations I had before going were busy tourists spots but this allowed me to find some real hidden gems. Many of the more rural roads in the highlands have terrible phone signal, so being able to download maps offline is a real help for navigation. Also; listen to the stories! Some had us laughing out loud.
Amazing App for businesses & travelers
Very intuitive, easy to use, covers everything you need as NC500 business owner and more important travelers. The interactive map with its multiple option is a joy to use. Well done guys, you definitely raised the standard.
