Travelling by train to Thurso or Wick then onto John O'Groat

We are travelling by train from Inverness on Saturday 18th August to Thurso or Wick for a day trip

If you are familiar with this trip can you assist us with some information about the best way to plan this trip

We are wondering if it is better to take the train through to Thurso, then is there a bus that will take you to John O Groats ?

Then we thought we could then get a bus to Wick and pick up the return trip to Inverness from there.

Just not sure if this is possible.

We are finding it difficult to find information about these services.

Thank you

There is a number 80 Bus between Thurso & JoG, and a 77 between Wick and JoG.

You’ll need to peruse the timetables carefully to see if yiu can match train departures and do watch out for more limited schedules on a weekend

Thank you so much for this reply

We will have to carefully consider our options

We are wondering if we may just catch a local taxi
