John o'Groats Trail: Berriedale to Dunbeath
The ninth stage of the John o' Groats Trail is a rough coastal clifftop walk along the Caithness coastline. There is a fine coastal arch, a waterfall falling into the sea and an impressive rock stack along the way.
Tussocky, pathless clifftop walking with some very boggy sections. Several barbed wire fences do not have stiles.
Bus service along the A9.
Cottages on south side of river at Berriedale (no road access - nearest parking near post office or at layby on bend on A9).

All route descriptions and difficulties given here are for summer conditions. See our Winter Essentials page for basic information on the skills, techniques and knowledge needed for winter hillwalking.
