The chance of a £17 train fare from Carlisle to John o’ Groats and back was too good a chance to miss. Having never been to Lands End, I thought it would be good to go to the most northerly part of Great Britain (while we still have a Great Britain!) One day up, one day there and one day back. Great train journeys and good B & B. The only down side was the weather. I never put my umbrella down. No wind, just rain and mist. Got photos to prove it.
The people I met were great; the man diving in the harbour looking for a lost key, the lady on the bus who gave me a verbal tour of Thurso, the youths on the train going to a rock festival at Inverness (no they weren’t so lovely!)
If anyone could guarantee the weather I’d go again; which I suppose that means I won’t be going again. So, yes I’ve been to J o G and no I haven’t seen J o G.
