From the car park at the iconic harbour of John o' Groats this walk takes you along the shore of the 'Hell's Mouth', as the Pentland Firth was known in the age of sail, to the beautiful white sands of the Bay of Sannick, up to the Stephenson-designed lighthouse at Duncansby Head, before taking in the awesome Duncansby sea stacks and returning to the start.
