John o' Groats (Scottish Gaelic: Taigh Iain Ghròt) is a village in the Canisby parish of Caithness, in the far north of Scotland. John o' Groats lies on Britain's northeastern tip, and is popular with tourists as one end of the longest distance between two inhabited British points on the mainland, with Land's End in Cornwall lying 876 miles (1, 410 km) to the southwest. It is not quite the most northerly point on the island of Britain; nearby Dunnet Head is further north. John o' Groats is 690 miles (1, 110 km) from London, 280 miles (450 km) from Edinburgh, 6 miles (9.7 km) from the Orkney Isles and 2, 200 miles (3, 500 km) from the North Pole. It is 4.25 miles (6.84 km) from the uninhabited island of Stroma.
