John o’Groats

The epic journey from Land’s End to John o’Groats is often attempted by many. My in-law’s would often share memories of their trips to Land’s End in their youth (see photo) – unfortunately they never had the opportunity to venture to John o’Groats for their photo album. When my Father-in-law passed away in 2017, we decided to travel to John o’Groats with the family to complete the journey and add to our own family album.

This page is part of Coastal Knowledge, an online exhibition mapping some of the amazing places on the coast of Scotland.  It includes pictures, memories, artworks, stories and videos submitted by a variety of people including scientists, artists, coastal dwellers, tourists, and community organisations.  We want to share the beauty of the Scottish coast, but also its vital role in the day-to-day lives of people in Scotland- for example, its many industrial roles.

This exhibition is dynamic and ongoing- and we’d love for you to share contributions for it too!  To learn more and submit your own coastal knowledge, visit the main page of the exhibition.
