Land's End to John O'Groats Cycletouring Trip Part 2


Day 54 - Rest in John O'Groats

I decide to stay in John O'Groats today as The Castle of Mey is closed until tomorrow. I go for a walk along the paths around Duncansby Head. The Old red Sandstone cliffs here reach a height of some 70 metres (250 feet) and the action of the sea has carved an impressive variety of sea arches, caves, geos and stacks. I go to photograph the famous Stacks of Duncansby.

There are a large number of sea birds all of which nest in inaccessable positions for taking photographs.

In the evening I end up in the bar of a B&B up the road from the campsite and talk to a couple of gentlemen walkers about the Munroes and hill walking.
