John o’Groats is a fishing village at the northern tip of Scotland, famed because of its location, the (almost) most northerly point on the island of Britain. At Land’s End in Cornwall, 972 km in a direct line to the SSW, is the most (almost) southerly point of Britain. It is a popular effort by tourists in Britain to pay homage to both locations. John o’Groates is often used as a starting or ending point for cycles, walks and charitable events to and from Land's End. The name takes its name from Jan de Groot (John of Groat), a Dutchman who once ran a ferry service between there and Orkney, an island just to the north around 1489.

The village of about 300 is actually dispersed across the flat green tilled countryside. Walking a kilometre or so around the district will reveals some beautifully kept buildings from past centuries. The John o' Groats House Hotel (1875) has been described as “one of the UK’s most famous landmarks.” Also, there’s a landmark "Journey's End" signpost at John o' Groats, popular with photographers (and there’s one at Land’s End too). A passenger ferry operates from John o' Groats to Burwick on South Ronaldsay in Orkney. The coastline is breath-taking, the region rich with history, great bird-watching, and good shopping for local crafts.

Things to do: Walk the coast; find the Castle and Gardens of Mey; Castle Sinclair Girnigoe; Pulteney Distillery; and, maybe, spot the Northern Lights. Every July (usually the second weekend) sees the annual Wildcat Motorcycle Rally held at the local village hall, which is run by a local club of motorcycle enthusiasts. The phrase Land's End to John o' Groats is a metaphor for a great distance – ‘coast to coast’.
