Whether for charity or personal challenge the Lands End to John O’Groats journey (Le-Jog) is worthwhile to see our lovely countryside at a slower pace.
The north coast road to John O’Groats takes you past Dunnet Head – which is actually the most northerly point. Although a detour it is worth it.
If you find John O’Groats a bit of a disappointment when you get there, please go to Duncansby Head (just a short way) to see the stacks. They are spectacular.
Thurso and Wick are relatively large towns and have most amenities including cycle shops.
We have a large, locked shed to store your cycles at our bed & breakfast house in Thurso and we are not far from the train station.
If you want to take a cycle on the train south you must pre-book it in as there are limited spaces. Information can be found at National Rail Enquiries.
