The Ca', Brough

This road is the northernmost B-road on the British mainland. It leaves the A836 in the small village of Dunnet, almost immediately making a sharp right to head north past St Johns Loch, before reaching a TOTSO in Brough. The coast is very briefly met next to the sea stacks of Little Clett, before sweeping in land once more (and all too often into the cloud). The road climbs in a series of short straights, with good visibility before a sweeping bend climbs up to Long Loch. Beyond the loch, another bend leads to the car park at the end of the road, just a short stroll from the lighthouse at the northern most point of the British mainland and the viewpoint on the knoll above.
