After much consideration, we have taken the very hard decision not to open the guest house this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The situation remains very fragile and we need to ensure the well-being of our guests and ourselves, whilst taking into account the resources of the local area. There are very limited health care facilities and we cannot risk adding to the pressure they are already under.
We wish you a safe passage through these difficult times and will be delighted to welcome you here in the future.
Around the Coast in 18 months!
August 22, 2014
We meet the most inspiring people here at John o' Groats Guest House.
Adam Short was just passing our door. We asked him if he was alright and did he need some water, he said he'd "love a cup of coffee". So we invited him in and his story unfolded.
He is a remarkable young man who is walking the coastline of Britain, all 6,800 miles of it. He is also wild camping which means he has to carry a pack weighing 22kg.
