Please note: Whilst displays​ of the aurora are common in John o' Groats, obviously the chances of seeing them are dependent upon solar conditions and the prevailing weather.

"One of nature's most spectacular displays"​

The further north you are, the better your chances of witnessing the aurora. On the British mainland, in John o' Groats, you are as far north as it is possible to be and your chances are maxmised.
