John o'Groats is famed as the northeastern corner of the British Mainland and the small village receives a huge number of visitors. The true northeasterly point is nearby Duncansby Head, which has two truly spectacular sea-stacks just to the south. An excellent coastal walk.
Mostly grassy cliff-top walking; there are a few boggy patches. Care is needed near the cliff edges.
