After years of talking about John o Groats to Lands End by foot i am finally doing it. Maybe raise a bit for cancer research and enjoy A summer saunter the length of Britain. The most northerly point is Duncansby Head so at 10am today i started heading for Wick which is 19 miles south. In thick rolling sea mist i set off. With the fog horns blarring in the distance the walk was a pleasant stroll taking about 5 hours. There are a few end to enders along the way some on bicycles some on moter bikes and a few walkers. A young girl called Sofie and her dog are walking for dogs trust carrying all her kit on her back. Arriving at wick campsite a hot shower and a sit down she arrived not long behind me. No doubt we will be passing and meeting up all the way down.
