THE JOHN O’ GROATS TRAIL is a 147 mile coastal walking route from Inverness to John o’ Groats, traversing shorelines, cliff tops, back lanes and footpaths of the Scottish Highlands. The route is a work in progress. Some of it is remote, pathless and challenging terrain. Other sections are already popular walks. The walk is meant to be used both by long-distance walkers going as far as to or from Land’s End, and local walkers looking for a coastal stroll. Accommodation, meals and shops are available at the end of most stages of the walk. A bag transfer service is available.
