Stacks of Duncansby, John O'Groats

This postcard shows the Stacks of Duncansby Head in Caithness. Duncansby Head is situated to the east of John O' Groats and is home to a lighthouse built in 1924. This is said to be the true most north easterly tip of the Scottish mainland, exceeding John O' Groats by at least a mile. Its headland protrudes into the North Sea, with the Pentland Firth to its north and west and the Moray Firth to its south. The Stacks of Duncansby Head are sheer cliffs that rise 210 feet out of the water
