Erin Baker: I've found the best road in the world!

The top of the country is busy marketing itself as Britain’s answer to Route 66. Visitors familiar with the Highlands will be long aware of the stunning coastal roads round Caithness and Sutherland, but the entire road trip, from Inverness, up towards John O'Groats, then along the top, past the shops of Thurso to the fisheries of Durness, before turning down the western side, past Skye to Applecross, has now been renamed the NC500. Hashtags and a social media campaign have followed, including even an NC500 burger at one pub we stopped in.
