You may have seen our site and wondered, where is North Coast 500 Pods? We can easily answer this question and then we can give you a new question to think about instead. How can you be missing out on such a mesmerising place to stay?
Our North Coast 500 pods are in Achmelvich in the north-west of Scotland. It’s a stunning place to be with its white sandy beach and gorgeous turquoise seawater just a 2-minute walk away from where the north coast 500 pods are located. The beach itself has won numerous awards, its a beach with some of the cleanest waters and the overall quality of the beach has won awards and that comes as no surprise for anyone with its incredible soft white sand. The beach is surrounded by the mountainous, rocky hills of the Assynt area that are perfect for anyone who loves taking a hike.
The local village Lochinver, which is very popular for fishing, is only 3 miles away and here you will find larger grocery stores, restaurants, petrol stations and shops to stock up with essentials, souvenirs and whatever else you may need on your North Coast 500 adventure.
Often at night, bonfires are arranged, of course, these are done responsibly and are managed for safety, where your friends and family can enjoy a lovely evening around a campfire, on or near the beach, and maybe have a drink or two.
