EFFORTS to improve accommodation on the NC500 route are being stepped up with funding of £200,000 made available by operators of a regeneration fund.

The money has been provided by the North Highland Regeneration Fund (NHRF) which will run as a pilot project, was launched at the Castle of Mey and is open to existing operators and those planning to start up a new business.

It offers low-interest loans of up to £25,000, along with access to advice and support with the aim of increasing the quantity and quality of accommodation in the area.
