Pass By: John O'Groats Harbour, Unnamed Road, John o' Groats, Wick KW1 4YR, UK

Join a local lass, Lisa, at mainland UK's most northerly settlement for a stroll along the shore past coastal farmland to a secluded beach brimming with shells. She'll share her sustainable and mindful Groatie Buckie hunting skills with you here as you explore the natural landscape. The experience of searching for these tiny cowrie shells allows you to slow down, enjoy the moment, and immerse your senses in nature.

The walk is 2 hours in total so feel free to bring your favourite hot drink in a flask and a snack. Wear comfortable shoes and take Scottish weather into consideration. Lisa recommend bringing a waterproof jacket, as well as a hat and gloves incase it gets chilly.

Pass By: John O' Groats, Airor KW1 4YR Scotland
