Re: John o'Groats Trail from Tain to John o'Groats

Glad you enjoyed the trail and you found the locals were most helpful. More and more Europeans are now discovering this bit of the Highlands.
A quieter walk than some more crowded trails.

Re: Bear with me no more. R.I.P.

Sorry to hear of your loss. Remember Bear well was it at Torridon or Gairloch YH with my Jet. Take comfort of all the happy times and adventures you both had together. Memories never go away.

Re: New bridge at Ousdale burn

Sgurr, thanks for comments but Strathan bridge is on opposite side of country to where we are. We only do work on the east coast linking our trail from Inverness to John O'Groats.

Think no one owns up to the Strathan bridge for insurance purposes possibly.

New bridge at Ousdale burn

A team of volunteers built a new bridge yesterday to cross the Ousdale burn which is on the new Inverness to John O'Groats coastal hiking trail. This is the biggest bridge we have constructed so far. Many walkers from across UK are looking forward to using this bridge in near future. 29354557_107102...

Re: John O'Groats trail

Thanks nick70 and gordie12 for considering this trail. Should gain more interest once guide book and map are available. Keep an eye on the website.

John O'Groats trail

For information about the John O'Groats trail see below. In near future there will be a guide book and a Harvey's map available. If you've done other trails why not try this one. Very dramatic coastal scenery when you get to Caithness. CPS Final Version JOG Trail Mid Blue Front_Page_1-800x560.jpg CP...

Re: Old Wick

A great walk and now part of the new Inverness to John O' Groats hiking trail. Great views around and a fascinating insight to the herring industry that made Wick great.

Re: The John o' Groats Trail

Hi ranklb viewtopic.php?f=25&t=71966 A link to a couple who did this in 9 days recently. Lots of info about current state of trail. The trail is still a work in progress and in a lot of places there's no proper track. However from Inverness north the walking will be easier and possibly you could...

Re: Scaraben scorchio

Glad you both got a cracking good day for your return visit to Caithness. You've done a good job in promoting our hills, maybe we'll get some more visitors.

Re: Morven just a Graham!

Good report there of our so called oddities in Caithness. The beauty of these hills is that you'll probably not meet anybody. Such isolation and on fine days views as far as the eye can see. Once you've done the Scarabens, why not try some of our coastal walking along the new John O' Groat trail fro...

Hi Mal,

Thanks for posting your photo from roughly the same position.
