A new podcast series has launched with the aim of showcasing the many attractions and activities that visitors can enjoy along the North Coast 500.

The series currently consists of six available episodes, hosted by presenters and producers Dan Holland and Pennie Latin.

With a combined 45 years of experience in broadcasting, the pair have featured on a variety of BBC productions and are also the founders of Highland-based audio production company Adventurous Audios.

Each episode, approximately 45 minutes long, centres on a different area along the route, with the presenting duo partaking in activities such as snorkelling, sea-kayaking and mountain-biking.

Dan and Pennie have also enlisted a range of local experts to help them highlight the remarkable features unique to each region, including those that may be lesser known to some visitors.

The first episode features the Northwest Highlands Geopark, which was awarded Unesco status in 2004, while its second outing spotlights the historic Attadale Gardens in Wester Ross, and its third educates listeners about the wildlife of the Black Isle.

Craig Mills, head of operations at North Coast 500, said: “While road-trippers have long been aware of the beauty that the NC500 has to offer, this podcast puts a focus on the wide variety of activities available to enjoy along the way.

"By slowing down and taking multiple trips on the route, visitors can get to know each of the different areas in depth and really maximise their time on the North Coast 500.”

Listeners can subscribe and listen at https://northcoast500.podbean.com or on a range of mainstream platforms including Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify and Amazon Music.
