John O’Groats and the Far North

from Inverness

Tour Highlights: The Black Isle, Nature Watching, Golspie, Pre-historic sites, John O’Groats, Duncansby Head and Golspie

This fascinating tour will introduce you to Scotland's varied wildlife, the stunning cliffs of the northern coast and the barren magnificence of Caithness. A splendid day out with a difference!

We leave Inverness behind and head across the Black Isle to the Cromarty Firth. In
Golspie, high above the town, is an astonishing statue, 27m (90') high. This is of the First Duke of Sutherland, whose agents were involved in the most notorious of the Clearances in the Highlands during the 19th Century. We’ll hear more about this sad episode in the history of Scotland as we make our way northwards.

Soon we will be in Caithness. The traditional industry of this remote county was herring fishing and during the 19th Century many picturesque harbours were constructed here to meet the needs of this ever-expanding industry. We will make a stop at one to enjoy a quay-side picnic lunch (weather permitting!).
 
There will be a stop in
John O’Groats for that "I was there” photograph before making our way to stunning Duncansby Head where, after a stroll along the cliff-top path, there are views of the dramatic sea stacks and seascapes to enjoy. uncansby is rich in birdlife including Guillemot, Kittiwakes and, the most famous residents, Puffins (until late July).

After our visit to Duncansby we turn southwards for home. Our journey will take us through Wick and there will be a comfort stop along the way before we make journey’s end in Inverness.
