Let's Go North

"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 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!

Join us on the North Highland Way."
