Just returned to our B&B from our trip out to Cape Wrath and even though it was raining and there were some minor mechanical issues and a slight delay due to the weather, it was a fantastic visit. The Ferry man knows his business and more importantly his ship. The Bus man (Stuart) knows more than his business and his... More

If you find yourself up the very north west of Scotland, you will already know that it is a wild and beautiful space, with lots of outdoor acitivites on offer. On a pretty dull September afternoon we took the little ferry and then the longest 11 mile journey (50 minutes) to the lighthouse. the Lighthouse might of been our final... More

We loved every minute of this. Starting with the short journey over in the small ferry, and then a hair raising, but brilliant 11 mile journey to Cape Wrath itself. We are not 'coachy' people, but this was marvellous. Our driver was informative, hugely funny, not remotely clockwork, and a incredibly skilled. We spent an hour at the Cape, which... More

What a wonderful place to visit. The ferry journey is short but fun, and the journey across land is very informative indeed. There is much to see and when you arrive at your destination, a little shaken up perhaps, the views are magnificent. There is even a cafe available now that "a local" has permission to live and work there.... More

The small ferry is open to the elements, the mini bus bumps long a badly maintained road with the evidence of bombing raids clearly visible, the toilets were closed etc. It would be so easy to be negative but it was a truly fantastic few hours. This is possible Britain's largest wilderness area, the landscape is inspiring and the views... More

Beautiful scenic place once we got there. 50 minutes of bumpy ride to and back was not so pleasant. There was no bathroom facilities either which was so inconvenient. The coffee shop service was basic. If not for seeing my scottish husband so happy while exploring, I would not have enjoyed this tour.

Before yo begin your trip to Cape Wrath you have to get the Ferry across by Skipper John who is the accordian man of Durness. He can make the most boring day in Durness exciting , the first time that I met John was in the Smoo Cave enjoying a pint of Guiness and John walked over the table next... More

16£ per head and 3-4 hours of a ricketty van ride through a field of unexploded bombs to see a lighthouse. Please don't even bother.

I have trief to get there over the last 43 years. whenever I arrived before: wrong time of the year, wrong time of the tide, wrong time for the ferryman. therefore no real surprise that even after phoning john from the lighthouse cafe, who assured me that the ferry and minibus are running during my planned schedule, the ferryman on...

Possibly best not to chose a day when the ranges are being used. We did and really enjoyed the excitement of both the ferry crossing and the minibus ride. Barriers across the road only being opened if it was safe to do so and timings to be kept so as to ensure safety. The Bus driver was trained as a... More
