Can anyone suggest where would be a good location to get accomodation near John O Groats. We are doing a day tour of the Orkneys that leaves 9:00 am from John O Groats and returns at 8:45 p.m. We would drive the northern coast towards Thurso on the way there and get accomodation for 2 nights so we could arrive back there after the full day tour and leave the next day down the east coast past Wick and south to Inverness. Yes, it is a flying trip but we are on limited time and thought the day tour would give us a great overview of the Orkneys to plan a longer stay next time. We have heard that John O Groats isn't necesssarily the best place to stay so we thought somewhere near might be better and would drive to John O Groats in time for the tour leaving at 9:00 a.m
Has anyone also been on this day tour I think jogferry runs it ????
Any info gratefully received.
