Dunrobin Castle and north to Caithness
Dunrobin Castle is Scotland’s most northerly great house and a wonderful day out. As well as the house and its treasures, the gardens, museum and birds of prey all contribute to an enjoyable visit.
Full information on opening times and the castle are available from the website.
John O’Groats is a small Highland coastal village with a world wide reputation. The drive north to John O’Groats is spectacular in itself and the village is just one of those places you have to see.
Head north from Dornoch and the drive will take around 2 hours.
