3 Jan 13 John o'Groats, Caithness. Sunshine.
Some welcome development at last. The hotel is being refurbished and extended, and
there's also some newly built self-catering 'eco-lodges', both owned by Natural Retreats.
There's also a new cafe where of course it was necessary for me to sample, as you do, the
cappuccino and cake. And very nice they were too.
