Wester Ross is a very special place designated by the Scottish government as an area that represents the very best of Scotland’s renowned scenery, and is officially recognized by UNESCO as a Biosphere reserve, one of only 6 in the UK.

From local cuisine to outdoor adventures, travel writer Chrissy Nason-Smith joins Lisa D. Smith on Big Blend Radio's Vacation Station Travel Show, to provide an inside scoop on this beautiful region, where she also owns An Cos Shieldaig, a luxurious 5-star vacation house in the historic village of Shieldaig. Shieldaig is located on the North Coast 500, a 516 mile scenic route around the north coast of Scotland that starts and ends at Inverness Castle.  Launched in 2015, the NC500 has already been voted one of the top five road trips in the world.
