John O'Groats

Bit of an odd place… The town had the feel of ‘closed for business.’ Maybe it was late when we arrived – not sure. The views out to the Orkney’s are fantastic. We had good weather but very windy. Trying to light a fire was near impossible. I think the wood dripping in sap which didn’t help!


Fancy a swim!


I was expecting a signpost with fingers pointing to parts of the world showing the direction and how many miles…


But no, you can buy the signpost!


We did find the council signpost


Does John O’Groats get any busier than this?

The Van Plan

Buy a van, (Or two.) Convert to a motor home then explore the UK and Europe, reaching places on the map other van travellers can not reach while enjoying vanlife in comfort.
