So I shouldn't plan on doing the NC 500 in my I-Pace this summer? :(
Hopefully I will have my I-pace in march/april and will be using some of the far North chargers on the NC 500 north coast as I live there. :D
If they are working :lol:
. The problem is even if they are working they won’t connect with I pace. I’m currently sat charging on a Siemens machine ( horray ) where the Evolt machine next to it just connects then shuts off. Tried two rapid chargers yesterday both working but refused to connect. It’s a joke .

I bet you can’t wait!

We have a home on the Isle of Skye, so drive the coast to coast link part of the NC 500 route every time we go over to Inverness. Not as spectacular as the coastal sections I’m sure, but still a great fun (and fast) drive... as yet to be done in the I-Pace!

I guess you already know about the CCS charger at Uig then? Just a few yards from the Brewery as well...(and a Cafe)
Not much else there really unless you are getting the ferry.
Much of the road up the west coast of Skye from Sligachan to Dunvegan has been totally resurfaced and is a pleasure to drive/ride.
I'll be riding the NC500 in mid-june as well as doing the 4-corners (The Lizard, Ardnamuchan, Dunnet Head and Gas Works road, Lowestoft).
Driving "Hirundo Rustica" since 15th Mar 2019. Lovely Jubbly :D :D

If you're going to Inverness Park's Jaguar have fitted some chargemaster chargers (pay per use though), think there are a couple of 7kw and a 50kw but I will check when I pick my I-pace up. Wasn't really taking much notice when I was having my F type serviced.

Thanks jagmanmick, that's a great tip. The round trip is around is around 210 miles, so a quick top up in Inverness would give me a useful safety margin.

We are headed up next week in my wife's car, then again at the beginning of April. If the weather is mild in April we will take the I-Pace.

We drove in and out of Uig just after New Year and did the Sligachan to Dunvagan road too. The issue for us isn't enjoying Skye itself... we can fully charge at home and do the far end of the island and back again with ease. The bit that needs planning is getting the I-Pace from up to Skye from York. Up to Glasgow will be easy once the new Ionity chargers at Gretna Green are available... top up to 100% again at an InstaVolt charger near Paisley... then 191 miles to our home on Skye. We could just do with a quick stop at a CPS rapid along that section to give us a safety margin. There are several to choose from and we only need one to be working. The last of them is only 14 miles from our home and even that one should be easily reachable.

Enjoy the NC500 in June!

Just bear in mind for planning that the last 10% if you’re charging to 100 will be much slower.

Further to this post I have found out the following:
There are 8 charging points available 24/7 but you need the Pod point app to access them.
Front of showroom: 2 X 7kw and 1 X 25Kw.
Rear of showroom (behind Jaguar side of the building): 2 X 7Kw and 1 X 25Kw.
Across the bridge (also on the Jaguar side) 2 X 7kw.
They do have 2x50Kw chargers in the workshop they use while maintaining the vehicles but unfortunately are not available to the public but you never know your luck if you speak to them nicely. ;)
As there is 2x25Kw (was expecting 22Kw) chargers I would presume they will only charge at 7Kw so all would add about 20 miles per hour.
I also note from zapmap that there are new 50Kw chargers springing up on the A9 corridor so things are improving.

Well I didn’t get as far as the NC500...but I drove North Yorkshire - Glasgow - Edinburgh - North Yorkshire over the weekend. Set out to try a few chargers too and I am delighted to report some (largely) good news. Ecotricity at Tebay worked (30p/kWhr though), I used three ChargePlace Scotland machines (two of them twice). Never failed to get a charge, although at one machine the car displayed a “High Voltage fault - OK to drive” immediately before I connected, got a red light at the charge port and the charger then displayed a CCS error...I locked the car, opened it again and all cleared. Overall a good experience...I was either lucky or things are improving.

Sounds good - i've seen the High Voltage fault but it did'nt clear straightaway and couldnt charge on another machine while it was displayed , even on AC. Were all your charges on Rapid 50 kw machines?
