    they don't bring the money you would expect not if they are racing it, and the Camper vanners buy all they want in inverness and Dingwall, our local campsite owner says they bring every thing with them and all they leave is their Cr@P, but the local attitude to visitors " don't come but send your money" was quite prevalent, easker1

    TT Riders?
    Old hat.
    Last time I did it, via the Bealach na Ba, I could not get parked at Applecross because of 16 Mclaren 500's in car park!!

    If you need a place to stay between Rhichonich and Kinlochbervie, I would certainly recommend The Old School Restaurant and Rooms. Excellent food and wine, and not prohibitively priced. No dogs in rooms but I safely left my dog in my estate car overnight in the car park to the rear.

    Both fishing and accommodation can be had on a budget thanks to Anders Polvsen. ��

    Absolutely. Stay away. Its rubbish. Go somewhere else. The fishing is rubbish.

    I agree, "don't come but send your money" would be perfect for locals.
    There are though several printed articles stating that small businesses have benifited and new ones sprung up in the NC500 wake.
    Bikers tend not to carry food and fuel tanks are not large so restaurants, b&bs and fuel stops get their business.
    I have a campervan and make a point of buying supplies locally wherever I am.
    Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught and the last river poisoned, will we realise, we cannot eat money.
