The old hotel at John O'Groats, Caithnes in 2010

The old John O'Groats hotel before it was restored. This photograph was taken in 2010 before work started to upgrade and improve the hotel. A number of "artstic" projects were paid for before restoration as you can see from the photographs below.

The John O'Groats hotel is the most northerly hotel in the UK mainland and now is part of a multi-million pound holiday and visitor attraction in the far north of Scotland.

The hotel had been left to go derlect for many years before Natural Retreats invested in the John O' Groats Hotel and holiday complex. The holiday facilities at John O'Groats now provides excellent accommodation to support the increasing number of visitors who come to far north for a short break or longer vacation.

On this page we have added a little snapshot of the recent history of the John O'Groats Hotel in pictures. We hope you enjoy seeing the transformation to a modern hotel steeped in history.
