Following reports of some drivers attempting the North Coast 500 loop in 24 hours, police say they will send an "unprecedented" number of officers to monitor the route.

The North Coast 500, 'opened' in 2015, is a 516-mile circuit through the Highlands of Scotland that attracts many tourists.

New speed cameras will also be installed on the A82 and A85 parts of the route where it's said that one in three drivers speed.

A police spokesman said "The North Coast 500 has undoubtedly led to a welcome increase in visitors to the area and we want to ensure that people both tourists and locals alike can enjoy these roads safely. Regular marked and unmarked patrols were carried out on the roads of the North Coast 500 with more than 1,300 hours of dedicated road policing activity in the last year."

He added: "This is as a direct response to priorities set for us by our communities, who regularly highlight road safety as a key issue."
