Duncansby Head represents the most north-easterly point on the British mainland, its red sandstone cliffs lying a mile or two beyond the famous village of John o’ Groats. Just to the south are two striking, sharp-pointed sea stacks that rise out of the North Sea with more than an air of symmetry.[ReadMoreMob]

A little further along the coastline is the Geo of Sclaites, a large cleft eroded into the cliffs, which is home to a large seabird colonyFulmars, kittiwakes, puffins, guillemots, wheatears and skuas are some of the most common feathered visitors to the area.
