Duncansby Head, The Scottish Highlands
  • About Us

    Duncansby Head Information

    Duncansby Head is the most northeasterly part of the British mainland, including the famous John o’ Groats and marked by Duncansby Head Lighthouse, built by David Alan Stevenson in 1924.

    The headland juts into the North Sea, with the Pentland Firth to its north and west and the Moray Firth to its south. The Duncansby Head Site of Special Scientific Interest includes the 6.5 km stretch of coast south to Skirza Head, and the Duncansby Stacks just off the coast.

    A minor public road leads from John o’ Groats to Duncansby Head, which makes Duncansby Head the farthest point by road from Land’s End.
