Woke up to more snow but not too bad. We hit the road about 9 and arrived in John O’Groats before 12. We were a bit early for the guesthouse so went for an explore and a coffee. Hazel took a couple of touristy photos because you have to.
While John O’Groats makes much of the start / end of the walk, convention has it that the walk really begins or ends at the Duncansby Lighthouse, which is the most north-easterly point on the mainland. Given a cold wind but otherwise nice day I decided to try and get in a few miles. By 4pm I had covered 10 miles (5 more than intended) so we called it a day.
Another marvellous welcome from Mary and Mark at the John O’Groats Guest House. A quick bar snack at the local hotel and now time for bed.
This may be the only time I can say this but as of right now, I’m ahead of the plan 🙂
