If so check out my photos and videos of a visit in June 2021 plus all the practical information you need in relation to your visit.
Getting to Duncansby Stacks
Duncansby Stacks are located to the East of John O’Groats.
To reach them take a right turn off the A99 just infront of the Seaview of Hotel (which is on the right hand side of the A99). This is just as you are coming into the outskirts of John of Groats.
After turning right you will see Puffin Croft on your left hand side.

Great Location right on the beach — The Sol E Mar, Albufeira
Hotel Sol E Mar Albufeira — 4 Night Stay

Most people have heard of Loch Ness. It’s one of the most visited places in the Scottish Highlands.
