It was great to see all the energetic folk who competed in the John o' Groats Trail run.
The Trail Runs are a series of gruelling off-road challenges organised by the hearty bunch at "North Highland Harriers". The series of races captures some of the most rugged and stunningly beautiful scenery across Caithness and Sutherland.
The races are run each year through the Winter months so the weather can prove somewhat challenging, but it was a clear blue sky and crisp sunshine for this one - the sun always shines at John o'Groats!
There were plenty of smiles at the finish line where everyone enjoyed their complimentary beers safe in the knowledge they had certainly earned them.
