Activity Level:


The coastal views and landscapes are breathtaking – sometimes quite literally, as the wind whips in off the Pentland Firth and snatches the very breath from your mouth. Standing here on the northern edge of mainland Britain you are moved to reflect on the awesome, unstoppable power of the sea and the equally indomitable strength of the ancient rock beneath your feet, the two locked together in a timeless and never-ending battle.

NC500: Please note that this itinerary features part of the North Coast 500, the highly scenic coastal route which begins and ends in Inverness.

Tour highlights:

  • The famous Stacks of Duncansby
  • Journey’s End signpost at John O’Groats
  • Summer gardens at the Castle of Mey
  • The magical Smoo Cave
  • The uninhabited island of Handa
