John O' Groats to Land's End by local bus?

Jump to last reply

I just responded to another post, answering the question of why someone might want to go to Wick.

Which leads me to a question I have wanted to ask for years: when I was younger, it would have been possible to travel from John O'Groats to Land's End by local bus, but in my younger years I was too poor to take the time from my career to do it.

Suppose one wanted to do it today, linking one local bus service to the next in larger towns, could it be done? Could it be done if one were willing to supplement the busses with the odd taxi?

I envision traveling on weekdays, stopping for the weekend, when services are generally scarcer, in someplace pleasant to catch up and do the laundry.

And now the answer to the burning question: why would someone want to go to Wick? Short: like Everest, it is there. Longer: because some of us can't resist the farthest, highest, deepest places.
