The Sign Post at John O'Groats, Wick, Caithness
The Sign Post at John O'Groats, Wick, Caithness
Millions of photographs must have been taken at this site and probably this isn't the original Sign Post
... but there is some sort of aura when you see it for the first time.
Sadly, but understandable in this day ... to avoid vandalism the Arms and Circle Header are removed at night when the official photographer goes home.
However, for out of hours visitors all is not lost, as there is a painted Sign Post on a nearby wall.
