Over the last ten days we have driven the NC500 Highlands road trip starting at Inverness and travelling anti clockwise via John O’Groats, Kylesku, Torridon and the renowned Bealach na Ba. On Thursday we return to the start at Inverness for completion of the 500 ish mile trip. All done in our 2006 RX350 with 96k miles. The car has run perfectly, and proved a good choice for some of the tougher trails, including snow above 2000 feet yesterday on the Bealach na Bar! As it is a 350 we won’t mention mpg now will we.....but a smooth and reliable drive was what we wanted and why we stuck with a (veteran) Lexus.

Here’s some pics, one taken yesterday at 2000ft as we went to the aid of a couple stuck at the top of Bealach na Bar in a snowstorm with a puncture on their BMW touring bike, plus a gratuitous shot of just one of many beautiful highland vistas we we fortunate to come across during our NC500 trip.

I thought that this thread was about a new Lexus model at first. 😊

Great pictures!

We've driven from Herts to Islay a few times in my wife's RX350.

Great drive, amazing views.

( And Islay whisky )

Brilliant, great part of the uk. The scenery is awesome. We did it last year in a load of land rovers and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. It looks like you had a fair bit of snow at the top too.
