The Caithness North East Coastal Treasure Trail starts at:

Duncansby Head Lighthouse

Please Note: It is not advised to attempt this trail in wintry conditions.

This is a driving and walking Trail from Duncansby Head, the most northerly point in mainland Britain and John o'Groats, passing through Thurso to Scrabster, the most northerly town in mainland Britain. It involves driving on single track roads which may be impassable in winter. It also involves walking up (and down) some grassy hills and uneven ground which again may be difficult in wintry conditions, so suitable footwear is strongly advised. Unfortunately, it is unsuitable for wheelchair users. It includes part of the North Coast 500, a driving route around Scotland’s NE coast.

Other Treasure Trails on this route include Inverness, Dingwall, Dornoch, Wick and John o’Groats.
