Used to live up in Thurso when I was a lass (my dad was in the navy) and spent many a happy time at the lighthouse and beach at John O'Groats!

I'm amazed you can remember that far back.

Was on the Ester run last Saturday and nearly but not quite got to John O'Groats and then down to the other end this Saturday. It's been a spectacular week - excellent weather and remarkably quite roads.
