John o'Groats Trail: Whaligoe to Wick

The twelfth stage of the John o'Groats Trail leaves Whaligoe to head north on grazing land with some lovely sea features: Sarclet Harbour, arches, stacks, before it reaches the ruins of Wick Castle and the final coastal stage into the busy town of Wick which has all services.


Rough ground with livestock, mostly waymarked, some barbed wire fences to cross.
