Parked in track entrance to field and crossed ditch, short but wet walk to FBM. Thought about jumping ditch back to road but Mr TJR was giving me the 'don't even think about it look from the car!'

Just a quick hop over the ditch from the side of the road having stopped in John O' Groats for an ice-cream at Flavours first!

Pull in just past the FBM. Ditch best crossed at the pull in.

Took a quick nip up from John o' Groats whilst the punters had a coffee/photo stop.

So few logs for such an easy find, so close to JOG. Perched up on the bank beside A99. Easy to park, easy to find, mind the gap as you photograph it though.
