St John's Point

This lovely headland has excellent views across to Orkney and numerous stacks and geos on its coastline which also has the remains of a defensive fort. The second part of this walk visits Scotland's Haven, a natural harbour which is cut off from the rest of the sea at very low tide.


Rough and boggy paths with high cliffs in places, paths easy to follow.
