Travelled with my partner and 3 kids, was charged £28.50 for the ferry over (was overcharged by £4.50 by brochure price, checked afterwards) I thought this wasn't bad at all at the time. Got on the rickety minibus and the trip up was the usual uninhabited, remote stories of haunted houses etc. that humoured the kids. Some good info given... More

If you like the remoteness that nature can provide, then this is a must for you. I did this trip last year and will be back this September, visually stunning and awe inspiring so don't forget your camera. No need to take drinks or food, get it at the Ozone café, it will be the most remote cup of tea... More

I would like to single out John, the ferryman, for helping my wife and I to complete our coast to coast cycle challenge. On a foul morning we arrived alone at the ferry point knowing that with only two of us, the crossing was unlikely to happen. It was a wild and wet day on the Peninsula and the cycle... More

There are several problems with what could be a great trip. It is billed as a 2 1/2 hour trip (45 mins each way and 1 hour at Cape Wrath) There is no coordination between the ferry and the mini bus. We were lucky we only had to wait ten minutes at the jetty for the minibus, but others waited... More

Ferry crossing £6.50 per adult return,, first ferry at 9.30am and minibus ride £12 return per adult. The boat crossing takes a few minutes and ferryman efficient. The mini bus was torturous as road so bad but the tour guide/driver John was so helpful and shared interesting snippets of information re army involvement in area, types of wildlife and anecdotes...

We went on an organised trip with the Association of Lighthouse Keepers. Unfortunately there was a mess up with our minibus booking so half our group got left behind, after the ferry trip across, but they eventually caught up with us at the lighthouse an hour and a half later. Our 45 minute minibus drive was bumpy but the driver... More

I took the ferry and cycled up to the lighthouse on my own. I have wanted to do this trip for about 20 years and it didn't disappoint. Took the first ferry of the day and crossed the Kyle in the mist, which stayed low for most of the ride up to the Cape. Amazingly, the mist lifted as I... More

This is an unusual review, as we have not been there! Whilst there are plenty of leaflets in the area and reviews that encourage a visit to what must be the ultimate wild and lonely place, getting there is far from easy abnd our message, therefore, is that you might, like many people on the two days we tried, be...

Wee boat from Keoldale, minibus to Cape Wrath. Driver gave splendid commentary on the journey. Good way to access the splendid walk south from Cape Wrath to Sandwood Bay and Blairmore.

My Wife and I (in our 70's) had the worst weather day of our holiday on which to do this trip but we still enjoyed the experience. After a wet and windy wait on the ferry quay with just a small shelter to keep off the rain we crossed the water in a small boat to join up with the... More
