We completed the North Coast 500 yesterday over 10 days. The Local Guide was amazing and definitely added to our experience. The location pointers were fab, I’m sure we would have struggled finding some of the places without it. Just the perfect amount of information on each suggested stop allowed us to decide on where we wanted to visit. Prior to holiday I spent many hours researching where to go and what to do each day, my husband is more of the wing it and see type on holiday, this app takes the stress out of the planning and allows you to enjoy your surroundings.
I highly recommend this app to anyone doing the NC500, and look forward to more tours coming in future.

Brilliant tour guide app

This app was brilliant on our tour of the North Coast 500, we finished yesterday. It’s really impressive how the geotagging works to make sure you are aware of upcoming points of interest. I’ve enjoyed the little history interludes as well, it really gives life to the landscapes. This was so much more helpful than everyone’s suggested guidebook. We really recommend you use the app we found more interesting places using it than in all our research before the trip.
It worked brilliantly for us, no issues, no gLitches just good

Perfect Companion

I’ve just spent a week in the company of ‘The Local Guide’ who has ably pointed me in the direction of some amazing parts of Scotland that I would undoubtably driven straight past Although there are some great guide books for the NC500. They are difficult to access when you are driving alone. This app gave me all the information I needed without distracting me from my driving or the view. I would strongly recommend the app (but do make sure you download it using WiFi as it doesn’t download fully if using 4G.)
