The Black Isle
From being a relative backwater just a couple of decades ago, the Black Isle has become a busy through route and commuter zone.
Traffic jams, pollution and growing vulnerability to fuel price hikes are among the pressures taking their toll on local motorists.
We're working to boost more sociable, savvy ways of travelling on the Black Isle.

NC 500 - An Alternative View
The view expressed below appeared on the Facebook page of Cromarty Community Development Trust in 2019, with this comment from the Trust -
"This is not the formal opinion of the Development Trust, but it is an interesting 'alternative view' about the NorthCoast500, presented here to stimulate discussion. Interestingly, it says that Iceland banned camper van camping outwith official sites following rapid expansion of their camper van tourism. We're building a site in Cromarty, and it's obvious the pressures of tourism need to be managed in many countries. Cromarty welcomes tourism, and tourists support our local businesses; but communities should be able to choose how much tourism and what kind brings most benefits to our communities."
