John O Groats..
Well we finally made it to JOG.. The most Northerly point on Mainland UK .. Oh no its not !! That title actually belongs to Dunnet Head, a few miles along the coast (which we visit tomorrow)..
JOG is a nice enough place but not much there and a bit touristy.. Looking for Free or Wildcamping spots We were directed to a car park aprox 2 miles away at Duncansby Head Lighthouse..
WHAT A STUNNING LOCATION.. Our view was out over the sea towards Orkney.. It was a view to die for.. we levelled the camper onto the chocks and set off to explore the coastline..
Within minutes we were at a stunning Crevasse teaming with hundreds of sea birds, and in particular Colonies of Puffins.. Again seeing these wild birds so up close in their own habitat was truly humbling.. We walked on further and were greeted by one of the finest sights on our trip.. The Duncansby Stacks.. Sheer rugged beauty and Mother Nature at her finest.. It always makes the experience more enjoyable when you are not expecting something and then you stumble on something Extra Extra special.. The photos don’t really do the stacks justice but it gives you a fair idea of the beauty we stood in awe of..
We returned to the camper with a warmth in our hearts from our beautiful unexpected experience..
We thought this was a fitting time to open one of our leaving presents.. A cheeky bottle of Rose, given to us from Daughter No2 the Gorgeous Jade Scott.. We toasted her as we sat watching the sun drop into the sea over Orkney…
