Last summer I visited John O'Groats, travelling up from Inverness and stopping at Wick on the way. The day started with fog but matured with glorious sunshine as I walked along the sea shore and caught glimpses of the Orkney Islands over the water.
John O'Groats, in the far north of the Scottish Highlands, is a gateway to the Orkney Islands. Ferry services were established from the mainland to Orkney over 500 years ago. John O'Groats is also a target for intrepid cyclists, walkers and others who travel the 800 plus miles from Lands End.
