John o' Groats is an iconic small village in the far North Eastern corner of the county of Caithness in the Highlands.


It is at one end of the longest distance between two inhabited points on the island of Great Britain, Land's End (874 miles, 1407 km away) is at the other.

More than just a sign post!

Unfortunately too often visitors to John o'Groats come to snap a picture of the sign post before quickly whizzing to their next destination without taking the time to visit the amazing local family run businesses, sample the quality local produce or immerse themselves in the natural beauty with stunning walks, geological landmarks and the plentiful wild and sea life, along with many historical sites.

Take your time to properly experience and enjoy John o'Groats and Caithness across many days at your own leisure or by guided tours.
