Marker signs have been installed at John O'Groats for the benefit of walkers either starting or finishing a 147-mile coastal trail.
The signs were provided by the John O’Groats Brewery – which has set up a shop in the village's historic Last House – to give a new focal point for the John O’Groats Trail, a charitable project aimed at developing a walking route between Inverness and the north coast of Caithness.
Some of the team involved in creating and promoting the trail gathered on Sunday to mark the placement of the signs. The stone markers, featuring the brewery's logo, are positioned close to the old Duncansby foghorn between the Last House and the shore.
The walk between Inverness and John O’Groats can be completed in around 10-14 days, staying at accommodation along the way.
The trail volunteers are seeking to partner with local businesses and organisations to develop and maintain the trail as a grassroots project.
