The trip to Scotland's far north was really nice and I had wonderful sunshine in September. With a few stops for toilet breaks, stretching legs or enjoying the landscape (we saw seals), gave a lunch break at a small harbor. Continue to Duncansby Head (approx. 45 minutes walk to the cliffs), over John O'Groats with a coffee break and over the town of Wick back to Inverness. The trip is quite long, but it's worth it. The time you spend on the bus is also entertaining because the landscape is simply beautiful.

Very nice tour of the scenic landscape, with exceptional view of John O'Groats. We were lucky where the weather was concerned, just a few showers here and there. I had a lovely time, and got a few good shots to remind me of the tour. The only detail I wasn't happy about was the leg space on the bus; if the tour had been fully booked with no spare seats, ten hours would have been torture.
