A GROUP of petrol heads have been snapped parking their supercars in dangerous spots along Scotland’s North Coast 500.

Posting pictures on Instagram, a member of a squad of around a dozen supercars drivers took an aerial shot of their vehicles on the Kylescu Bridge in Sutherland while the road was open.

The picture's caption read: "Parked up on the infamous Kylescu Bridge in the glistening sunshine. A true bucket list moment for any petrol head! Unbelievable day spent driving with a great group of people."

The post courted controversy with one user commenting: "Are you kidding! It's a bridge not a car park."

One Facebook user posted screenshots of the posts saying “This is unacceptable!” and subsequently posted a link to safe parking spots along the iconic coastal stretch.

Another post showed the cars completely filling a layby along the road with the caption: "perfect pit stop...".

The North Coast 500 is often dubbed Scotland’s route 66 as it offers stunning views and exciting stretches of road making it popular with tourists and car enthusiasts alike.
