    A quick snap that I took of the John 'O Groats hotel yesterday.

    A really good photograph , arransinclair, such a shame that it has now become such an ugly building due to so-called "developments" !!

    I have to agree with you it looks like they have added sheds coloured in the political parties livery to me.
    Hating people because of their colour is wrong. And it doesn't matter which colour does the hating. It's just plain wrong.

    I've got to be honest, I think it's really improved the look of the place, it's called "modern architecture" and modern people, like myself like it, remember what it looked like before, it was drab, dull and tired looking. At least a big nation wide company has addressed the issue and decided to invest their money into our local economy.

    Yes, arransinclair, it definitely does take certain people to have an idea into "so called" modern architecture. I was actually at the opening of said new "structure" which is meant to be the "new" John O' Groats Hotel . . . and to be absolutely honest, within the building I felt as though I had been transported into an asylum, whereby there is nothing "tangible" or worth looking at ( no windows to the outside world in the corridors ) apart from completely white walls with the odd "picture" - oh, excuse me the "pictures" were actually depicting which room you are allocated to . . . .I really hope and pray that my sanity provides me with more intelligence than whoever should be "incarcerated" within these walls . . . . . .

    cycling down the road, when you look across to the new chalets, they look like a ministry of defense camp
