Moderate - Challenging

The Aberdeen to John o'Groats, the Orkney and Shetland Islands is the most northerly of the UK long distance routes, and challenging in places. If you decide to head on to the  sections of the Orkney and Shetland Islands then it's up and down all the way. But all the hills are short and under 125 metres - the momentum of your downhill  run will get you to the summit of the uphill parts! And it's all not as scary as the profile suggests.
