The Scottish Highlands and North Coast 500 Tour takes us through approximately 1,300 miles of the most scenic glacial valleys, alongside shimmering lochs as smooth as glass, and over the best highland passes in Scotland.

We ensure that we ride some of the most amazing and twisting scenic roads in Europe, while enjoying the amazing Scottish hospitality.
After each outstanding day on the road, our evening’s are spent predominantly at high-end country hotels situated directly on and overlooking the lochs where we can really absorb the Scottish landscape and beauty and where we can eat together with some of the best locally produced and harvested food – especially seafood and steak, on earth.

The tour stops at numerous great viewpoints that will take your breath away, including Scottish castles and the odd Scottish distillery so that you can stock up on the finest whisky on the planet.

Traveling through the magnificent Scottish Highlands from the south to the complete north, we also travel around the beautiful Isle of Skye, we have an evening to travel into the historic northern Scottish city of Inverness, and we travel to and alongside Loch Ness.

Polaris love this tour and we know that you’ll love it too, and this is undoubtedly a European bucket-list tour for motorcyclists across the world that should not be missed.

Motorcycle and equipment rental (if needed) is available through our rental partner, RoadTrip Motorcycle Rental, based just outside of London, U.K. 

Come and join Polaris for this experience of a lifetime, and leave with lifelong amazing memories and newfound friends.
