The final stage of the trail soon passes the dramatic coastal ruin of Keiss Castle and follows the coast passing Nybster broch and impressive cliff scenery before finally reaching Duncansby sea stacks and the lighthouse before the last short section to John o'Groats and the end of the trail.
Rough coastal walking; no path and some tussocky going as well as very boggy stretches; one barbed wire fences to cross that doesn't yet have a stile.
Bus to Keiss from Wick and John o' Groats.
