North coast 500 the best road trip in the world.

Any person doing this trip pop in and get the crack with another Morgan owner coffee awaits and maybe a dram.

My local distillery loves photos of Morgan cars for their face book page so when you come we can pop along for a photo.

I live at Scrabster on the route

Sure does!

I read much about the joys of the NC500 but am unsure of the actual route and good places to stay, best time to do it etc - is there a link to an information site about planning a NC500 trip?

We're back up in May for our fix, but we don't do the whole route. Just parts of it.

I love the scenery and deserted roads.

Yep, we'll be up there towards the end of June. Like you, we'll not be doing much of the actual NC500 route, there's just so much fantastic driving up there that one can avoid the more popular roads.

Besides my utter favourite which is General Wade's Military Road, another delight is the B8004 from Banavie up to the Commando Memorial near Spean Bridge.
