    Many people will have heard of Wick, one of the most northerly cities in Scotland, but most will just pass through it on their way to John O’Groats. Just outside Wick are the remains of Wick Castle, perched precariously on a clifftop which is dotted with wild flowers. From Wick town centre, take a run out to the coast, onto the newly formed John O’ Groats Trail, and follow it south towards Lybster. The running is easy for the first part, as the trail is well trodden, but things get a little more ‘adventurous’ the further south you go! There, you’ll pass sea stacks, natural rock arches and thousands of squawking seabirds, making their homes in the nooks and crannies of the rugged Caithness coastline.
