Your journey north starts when you leave Inverness and head across the beautiful Black Isle to the Cromarty Firth. As you drive through this beautiful landscape you'll learn about the history of the region, including the story of First Duke of Sutherland, whose agents were involved in the most notorious of the Highland clearances in the 19th Century.
You'll then travel through the brooding and magnificent landscape of Caithness. This is a beautiful place full of amazing scenery and some of Scotland's most fascinating and rare wildlife. At lunch-time, you'll enjoy a coastal stop at one of the region's picturesque harbours. As you eat, there will be the chance to learn a bit about the region's traditional herring fishing industry.
After lunch, you'll get to the day's goal: John O'Groats. Here you'll be able to take an "I've been there" photograph. Then you can stroll along the cliff-top path at Duncansby Head and take in the dramatic views of sea stacks and the sea itself. Duncansby is rich in birdlife including guillemot, kittiwakes and, its most famous residents, puffins (until late July). There are binoculars available on board our mini-coach so you'll be able to get a " close up" view.
After your visit to Duncansby, you'll turn southwards for home. You'll travel through more breathtaking scenery and pass through the historic estuary town of Wick before your journey's ends in Inverness.
