The John o’ Groats Trail

is a 147 mile coastal walking route from Inverness to John o’ Groats, traversing shorelines, cliff tops, back lanes and footpaths of the Scottish Highlands.

The route is a work in progress. Some of it is remote, pathless and challenging terrain. Other sections are already popular walks. See stage status pages.

The walk is meant to be used both by long-distance walkers going as far as to or from Land’s End, and local walkers looking for a coastal stroll.

A bag transfer service and a booking service are available. The link for the booking service is and more info about the bag transfer service is available here.
