For a unique day out join us on a driving tour of Caithness taking time to appreciate the stunning scenery and unexploited beauty on the furthermost tip of Scotland, visiting Dunnet Head, John o' Groats and Duncansby Stacks.

We will pick you up from your accommodation in Caithness then travel by car to the small hamlet of Brough, here we can walk down to the picturesque small bay a haven for seals and birds. As we drive 6 miles to the UK's most northernly point we can appreciate the vertical sea cliffs and rugged coasts of Caithness. At Dunnet Head we can embrace the spectacular panorama across the wild waters of the Pentland Firth. Onwards we travel to John O'Groats, the most northernly village on Britain's mainland where we can stop for refreshments in one of the local cafes or stroll down to the harbour. A 15 minute walk will take us to one of the many hidden, pristine beaches in Caithness and is an ideal place to clear our minds and focus on finding the elusive Groatie Buckie a small sea shell thought to bring good luck. There is an opportunity to walk to Duncansby Head, home to an array of birds nesting on the dramatic sea stacks and when in season (May to September) we observe local colonies of puffins, this is a photographers paradise. On our way home we travel on the NC500 the iconic road taking us over sweeping landscapes our county is renowned for.
