2 Hour Groatie Buckie Walk near John O'Groats - find lucky shells with a local

Select Option


Lisa feels lucky to have grown up in the Far North of Scotland surrounded by vast open landscapes and beautiful coastlines. Groatie Buckie shells are said to bring good luck to those who find them and is an activity her family have enjoyed for many generations, even inspiring her work today as a digital artist. Before becoming a full time artist, she gained experience working in tourism and hospitality. She's passionate about sharing local knowledge, stories and experiences with others while ensuring beaches are left as they're found.
