I returned to John o Groats 17 years ago, having first been here 45 years earlier , when I managed the John O Groats House Hotel , at the very” end of the road”. Having brought my family up here in their younger years, I could not think of a better place to return to in semi- retirement. I live on site accompanied by my wee dog Ellie.

I am more than happy to help you plan your holiday in the area and offer advice on places of interest nearby. My aim is for you to have an enjoyable experience in the Far North of Scotland.
