Description - What to expect

Your Inverness to John O'Groats day trip departs from Inverness and travels north, up through to Loch Fleet where you might be able to spot some seals and a range of birds – make sure you have your camera ready! Your Inverness to John O'Groats tour continues on to the village of Golspie. The village, situated on the North Sea coast is nestled next to Ben Bhraggie and is an attractive little seaside resort, with long sandy beaches. Spend time here for refreshments before we journey on to Dunrobin Castle.

A stately home in Sutherland, Dunrobin Castle is the family seat of Clan Sutherland. It resembles a French chateau with its towering spires and it overlooks the Moray Firth. You'll have time here to explore the beautiful stately home, gardens & museum and enjoy some refreshments in their tearoom.

A former Viking settlement, Wick is the principal town in the far north of mainland Scotland. Spend time exploring the town, enjoying views across Wick Bay, whilst you enjoy your lunch.

After your visit to Wick, travel to John O’Groats, the most northerly point on the British mainland.
