North Coast 500 Pods are a fantastic place for you to experience the brilliance that Scotland has to offer. From the breathtaking views to the nature that can’t be seen anywhere else in the country, the highlands of Scotland is a special place with a lot to offer.
Being the furthest north of the country, it is a very diverse region with different wildlife and nature contrasting the rest of the UK. There are mountains, beaches, landscapes and animals that cannot be seen anywhere else in the British Isles, such as the Golden Eagle.
If you are planning a trip in the United Kingdom, then North Coast 500 Pods is certainly somewhere to keep in mind. Let’s take a look at some of the best things surrounding the pods and what you can look forward to when you are going on a trip to the north of this country.
If you couldn’t tell from the name, North Coast 500 Pods are extremely close to the coast. So close to the point where you can see the coast from the pods themselves. This coast is known as Achmelvich Beach and is home to some of the most beautiful, scenic views that the region has to give.
Achmelvich Beach is certainly a place worth visiting. The fine, soft white sand and the stunning water from the North Atlantic Sea will have you believing you’re in the mediterranean, and the scattered cliffs and rocks will remind you of the beaches that a tropical island could have.
Activities For You to Do
There are many activities in the surrounding area of Achmelvich Beach and North Coast 500 Pods for you to participate in. These activities are fun and the whole family can get involved with them. Let’s take a look at these activities and see what you find exciting:
Just above the beautiful coast, there is a fun 9-hole golf course for you to spend your time at. If you are someone who has never played golf before, or an experienced golfer, you are certainly welcome at Achmelvich Golf.
