Groatie Buckie Trail

Summary of idea

We are looking for funds so that we can extend the current fully accessible path network in John O'Groats along the shore east towards Duncansby Head. The initial path works have proved very successful, with 100's of people using it daily. It has really helped the physical and mental health and wellbeing of many many local people who can now access a beautiful walk along the shore that wasn't possible for them previously. People are coming form all areas of Caithness to use this facility and because it's wheelchair / pushchair friendly, so many people have been able to benefit. So we want to extend the path to give access to the beach area that Groatie Buckie are found, so that people can easily access this magnificent area and take part in a fun activity that costs nothing and can be enjoyed at any age young or old.
