Let’s Go North

untitledNow known as the Way of St. Brian

This is why it is not called the North Highland Way, and the reason why we did not get the funding for the sustainable tourism route we wanted. Ce la vie!

“The dream to create a route across the north of Scotland from John o Groats to Durness with the same facilities as the South West Path in England to be called the North Highland Way lives on.

It was first mooted in 1992 by the Caithness Waybaggers. It will not be a built way, but the areas around the main towns already have good access.

In other areas the route needs work which costs money.

The scenery, the history, the walks are superb. Help us raise funds for this massive project by attending our festivals, buying our books, contributing to our Just Giving campaigns and by checking back to Just Giving for the latest developments.

Great scenery, friendly local people always willing to give a hand if you have difficulty, great food and accommodation… the Northern Highlands has it all!

In addition, we are proposing that the route is fast becoming known as  the Camino de St. Brian….watch this space.

Join us on the North Highland Way.”

duncansbyThe walk from John o Groats to Durness is 150 miles and can be done in easy stages.  The route is still under development in places, although The Highland Council are doing a great job of looking after the route within their remit.  You can contact the Access Officer through the development site if you encounter any problems.

We are moving the tourism related information to LetsGoExploring.  Please bear with us.

This is where it all started.
