"to go...or not to go" John O'Groats by iaint
John O'Groats Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 60 photos
It is not a town - not even a village - maybe just a hamlet. A few crofts (Google it) at the (allegedly) northernmost point on mainland Britain.
A derelict hotel. A craft centre. A public toilet. A wee harbour. A couple of cafes.
I was there to catch a ferry to Orkney, a few miles away at Gills Bay. Otherwise...
Lots go there because it is the end/beginning of the Land's End trip.
No other reason...
- Pros:you can see Orkney
- Cons:you can see Orkney from nicer places
- In a nutshell:worth missing
