John O' Groats

At the end of the A99 lies the picturesque village of John O Groats. Do not expect ready- made entertainment and a bustling night life – the real attraction here is the tranquillity andstunning landscape. For visitors making use of one of the well-appointed self catering cottages, the Maxi Day Tour of Orkney in a coach will show just why this beautiful area is a balm for the soul. Shopping at Kirkwall and Scapa Flow, a Neolithic village, will have the day fly by while listening to an entertaining and knowledgeable coach driver highlighting the charms of the area. A visit to Duncansby Head and the starkly beautiful Stacks rising from the sea is well worth a walk through the grazing fields of Highland sheep. Stroll along past Sannick Bay where you might find delicate cowry shells, called Groatie Buckies, to the lighthouse. A short distance away, Dunnett Head is an enchanting destination and photo opportunities abound, especially in the forest. A trip on the ferry across Pentland Firth will take you to Caithness and along the way you might see grey seals, dolphins, killer whales and colonies of puffins. The Last House and Museum in the village houses artefacts from the area as well as a souvenir and gift shop. The working harbour gives insight into the livelihood of many of the locals and the nearby Craft Village offers authentic local candle works, pottery, knitwear and fabrics, as well as paintings and prints by local artist David Body. The two cafes and grocery store will supply you with food and drink and the local Tourist Centre supplies information about the area.
