John o Groats holiday homes are about unearthly experiences
Crowning Britain's northernmost tip, your John o Groats accommodation offers an unparalleled point of view. Magical experiences are certain in this unique destination which is steeped in history and atmosphere.
One of the jewels in John o Groats' crown are the Castle and Gardens of Hey. The castle's intriguing royal heritage is apparent throughout the lavish interiors, which are replete with personal touches. Restored by the Queen Mother in the 1950s, the castle is clearly a family favourite.
Don't miss out on the atmospheric ruined Sinclair Girnigoe Castle. Poised on a cliff above the ocean, you would hardly think that this tranquil spot had such a contested history. It was seized by Cromwellian armies in the 1600s and played an important part in the political events of the time. Seals often play in the cove beneath the castle.
Arctic skuas and the aurora borealis
Your family will be awed by the nightly auroras that dance across the skies above your holiday home. Your best chances of seeing the Northern Lights are in Caithness and the Orkney area. Although this natural phenomenon is unpredictable it is more common in the wintertime.
Don't forget to take a wildlife boat trip and see the Arctic skuas and guillemots that inhabit the waters here. Along the coast there are plenty of historic harbours where your family can enjoy the charms of the seaside.
