Aberdeen - John o'Groats - Orkneys - Shetland Islands
The Aberdeen to John
o'Groats, the Orkney and Shetland Islands
is the most northerly of the
UK long distance routes, and challenging in places. If you decide to head on to
sections of the Orkney and
Shetland Islands then it's up and down all the way.
But all the
hills are short and under 125 metres - the momentum of your
run will get you to the summit of the uphill parts! And it's all not as scary as
the profile suggests.
