Duncansby Head stacks are on the most northerly point of the British mainland, a higher latitude than John’O’Groats. On this Summer’s day the mist was pouring from the land to the sea, unusually. Yet blue skies over the North Sea. Yet the stacks or pinnacles are so majestic and give a good sign of coastal erosion.
These giant pinnacles of rock shoot out of the coastal floor and covered with seagulls nesting.
This is not a place to be during a storm which explains the automated lighthouse.
If you are visiting John’o’groats which always leaves me underwhelmed, instead go the further 5m drive here. It well worth it but use good shoes and stick to the paths as the cliffs are very steep!
