On Saturday 1st September, Senior Sales Executive, Neil Hunter will be taking part in the ultimate road trip, the North Coast 500.

Neil is taking to the roads with Lucerne Scotland Limited to raise funds for Alzheimer’s Scotland.

Based in West Lothian, Lucerne Scotland Limited are a Home Care Company with over 100 clients – many of which unfortunately suffer from some form of dementia.

The North Coast 500

The North Coast 500

Firstly, this challenging drive will take participants past the best of the Highlands. From magical and mystical castles, to roads near sea and land specialties, to Scottish distilleries and breweries. The North Coast 500 is a special tour, quite unlike anywhere else in the world.

Seven vehicles and 21 personnel will set off from Livingston. This will be a 750-mile round trip taking in the magical coastal scenery route. It will naturally follow the main roads along the coastal edges of the north Highlands of Scotland, taking in the regions of Wester Ross, Sutherland, Caithness, Easter Ross, the Black Isle and Inverness-Shire.

As fantastic as this trip may sound, it will be a challenging drive. It takes the participants past the best of the Highlands, camping overnight in Calder near Thurso, and then the following day in Torridon.

On completion of the trip on Monday, the team will be met by The Courier newspaper.

The North Coast 500 was launched only three years ago. Yet it has reached a huge global audience and is highly ranked by many independent sources.

Alzheimer’s Scotland

A charity close to Capital’s heart, Alzheimer’s Scotland offers dementia help and support across Scotland.

The charity provides a wide range of specialist services for people with dementia and their carers.

Alzheimer’s Scotland

Dementia is an illness that affects the brain, making it harder to remember things or think as clearly as before. It can affect every area of human thinking, feeling and behaviour, but each person with dementia is different – how the illness affects someone depends on which area of their brain is damaged.

In addition, an estimated 90,000 people have dementia in Scotland, with around 3,200 of these people being under the age of 65. This is a poignant charity for Neil to support.
