This was an excellent and well priced tour up to Cape Wrath. Our guide, whose name I wish I could remember, really made the trip. He was funny, and knowledgeable and identified with the adults as well as the children, meaning it would be an excellent trip for families. The lack of public toilet at the lighthouse was noticed by... More

The trip to Cape Wrath starts with a ferry, small boat, crossing across the kyle to the Cape Wrath peninsula. From here it is a 45 min mini-bus ride to the light house and you then have a hour to explore the area, have a drink and a snack at the Ozone Cafe, before returning. Hole trip is made interesting...

We really wanted to do something that would feel like an adventure for our 4 year old daughter and this didn't disappoint! The ferry wasn't sailing until lunch time because of the wind so we had to go away and come back having got there first thing, a good omen I thought! Once eventually seated in the outboard motor powered... More

Its Called Wrath for a good reason, but on the day of our visit it was calm, sunny, a bit windy but never the less a good experience. The journey starts with an open ferry crossing to meet the mini bus. The ferryman is a real character with lots of tales to tell and a good sense of humour! The... More

After a two hour drive we arrived to catch the ferry over to meet the mini bus. The bus trip was very bumpy but it is what we had expected going to such a remote place. On the day we visited it was a calm and warm day - not as we'd imagined Cape Wrath to be. We were a... More

The whole trip is a real experience, arrive at the jetty in plenty time as they can only take a small number of visitors each day due to logistics issues which become apparent pretty quickly! There were disappointed people but we made it. First is a small boat and entertaining ferryman.. Make it across the small estuary and the mini... More

This was an amazing trip through one of Scotland's remotest areas to the lighthouse perched high above the sea facing out to the Atlantic. Fantastic views and the opportunity to enjoy teas at the lighthouse (though note there are no public toilets!)

You´re traveling by a small ferry boat, get into a mini-bus, enjoy the scenery and get a lot to laugh about the comments of your tour guide John. Of course, you can do the tour on your own and start at Sandwood Bay. But inform yourselves about the bomber training of the RAF.

If I'm honest, I only knew that this was here because there's a geocache here - but what a fab day out we had getting it (if you don't know what geocaching is and are even vaguely interested, look here www.geocaching.com). We arrived at the ferry on the off-chance - the next ferry was at 12.30, which was in 45... More

After riding 70 miles on a mountain bike with panniers at the age of 12, you can probably imagine, the day I visited Cape Wrath was a long one! The 'ferry' you have to get across the Kyle of Durness is an experience! Then the ride through the MOD mine field is like something from a movie! Signs everywhere saying... More
