Cruising by Duncansby sea stacks
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.

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 colony. Fulmars, kittiwakes, puffins, guillemots, wheatears and skuas are some of the most common feathered visitors to the area.
