Running along the coastline from Golspie to Brora, this stage of the John o' Groats Trail is somewhat shorter and less rough than other sections in Sutherland or Caithness. It has plenty of interest passing the magnificent Dunrobin Castle and the well-preserved Dun Liath broch; views are good throughout.


Good paths to beyond Dunrobin, then becoming rougher; grassy paths and some shoreline walking.
