John O'Groats

DR and his pal, CA, went for a trip the other day from Inverness up to John O'Groats. Y'all have heard of 'from John O'Groats to Land's End' ...

As we've come to expect, DR didn't have his camera, but thankfully CA did. Here are some of his photos.

 The distance from John O'Groats to Lands end is the longest distance in mainland Britain: north-east to south-west.

Even in Scotland, we sometimes have to struggle with the sunlight.

"Where will drive to next, DR?"

Interesting rock formation.

This is Dunnet Head - the most northerly point on mainland UK.

And across the water, you can see Orkney.

Bonny, bonny place, don't you think?

A cruise ship was sailing through the Pentland Firth, with Dunnet Head to its south, and the Orkneys to its north.

    Love these pictures, thanks for sharing. My boys are heading to Scotland, today, for the World Pipeband Championship. Sure wish they had time to visit these great places. Have a lovely day and blessings on your week ahead.

  2. It is lovely...I'm surprised at how close Orkney is. I've heard of John O'Groats only from a race on Top Gear!!!!! :)

  3. Very pretty, and I have read about those places in books so it is very nice to get to see pictures of them. Lovely places.

  4. Very lovely! I love the Scottish scenery. Someday I will set foot on the Isles. Anyway, I was unable to receive your emails a few weeks ago. I guess there must be some disconnect between our accounts. (I was very disappointed!!)Do you know of a good resourse for learning how to speak Scottish Gaelic? I have a pretty good dictionary, but not much knowledge at all on how to structure sentences. I think I need a good grammar.
    Thanks for posting! I always enjoy reading and seeing the pictures.

  5. Oh! These photos are beautiful; one day, I'm visiting Scotland. Those who have visited there and here, at Thistle Cove Farm, say the scenery is very similar. Many thanks for visiting Thistle Cove Farm; I followed you home -smile-.
    The photo is either American Legion or Veterans of Foreign Wars starting off the small, community July 4th parade. Every year, they start and lead the parade...very patriotic!
