Tour Description:

John OGroats and the Far North Tour from InvernessTake this tour so that you can say that you've 'made it' to the most northerly point on the British mainland. This fascinating tour will also introduce you to the stunning cliffs of the northern coast, the wild magnificence of Caithness and an abundance of wildlife. It's a splendid day out with a difference!

Northward Bound...

Your journey north starts when you leave Inverness and head across the beautiful Black Isle to the Cromarty Firth. As you drive through this beautiful landscape you'll learn about the history of the region, including the story of First Duke of Sutherland, whose agents were involved in the most notorious of the Highland clearances in the 19th Century.

You'll then travel through the brooding and magnificent landscape of Caithness. This is a beautiful place full of amazing scenery and some of Scotland's most fascinating and rare wildlife. At lunchtime you'll enjoy a coastal stop at one of the region's picturesque harbours. As you eat, there will be the chance to learn a bit about the region's traditional herring fishing industry.

As far North as you can go...

After lunch you'll get to the day's goal: John O'Groats. Here you'll be able to take an "I've been there" photograph. Then you can stroll along the cliff-top path at Duncansby Head and take in the dramatic views of sea stacks and the sea itself. Duncansby is rich in birdlife including guillemot, kittiwakes and, its most famous residents, puffins (until late July). There are binoculars available on-board our mini-coach so you'll be able to get a "close up" view.John OGroats and the Far North Tour from Inverness
