The John o' Groats Trail (JOGT) is a coastal walking route under development along the eastern shores of the Moray Firth from Inverness to John o' Groats, traversing back lanes, footpaths, shorelines and cliff-tops of the Scottish Highlands. Accommodation, meals and shops are available at the end of most stages of the walk. It is listed by the Highland Rangers as an official virtual trail.
The route is a work in progress. All of the route is walkable, and is walked, both by local and long-distance walkers. However, much needs to be done to bring the trail up to the usual standards for walking trails. This will involve marking a footpath, putting stiles over barbed wire fences and some stone walls, and building infrastructure such as bridges in a few places. This is where Friends of the John o' Groats Trail, come in - their purpose is to build and promote the trail with volunteer help - see the website below for trail updates, events, volunteer days and related walks and contact information.
