Simply amazing! It is a voyage to nowhere, a long trip by really slow minibus in intermittent rain. While the whole thing could seem an exercise in total futility, encountering the constant dry humour of Reginald the driver and the serious weirdness and quirkiness of the people who decide to do this trip was an honour. I can say that... More

stunning and hard to believe its MOD land as its so beautiful. Not allowed to go too near but from Durness you could see its magnificence! Quite a sight to see when the MOD are doing mock training excersises!

With only 16 places on each minibus it took just two boatloads of 8 people to fill up our trip at 9 and so some were left on the Quay until 11. The cost of the boat for a short trip was £6.50 and the minibus was a bone creaking hour for £12, not cheap for a family trip but... More

We went early to catch the ferry having been told it was limited numbers on the boat and mini-bus. There was a short boat trip and then mini-bus ride to the lighthouse. The views were beautiful and the added commentary added to the fun. The road can be rather bumpy in places but we thought it was a trip not... More

We arrived at the ferry an hour early to hopefully secure a place on the minibus and glad we did too, as it was soon very busy. The ferry (well its a small boat) took 10 minutes and then we were onto the minibus. The drive to the lighthouse takes an hour but the driver is very informative and funny... More

It was fantastic. The boat ride was short but fun. Our bus driver Reg was ACE, informative, interesting and a great laugh. Yes it took an hour to get to the lighthouse, but well worth it. We had good weather, no midges, the views were spectacular and I am so glad we did it. Recommend 100%.

We had a really good trip over to Cape Wrath, even the weather was on our side. We turned up and were lucky enough to get a ferry almost straight away but it can be a bit hit and miss depending on numbers and weather. After the short ferry ride there is an hour long mini bus ride to the... More

Having got the boat over too the island to pick up the mini bus we were drenched. It was a rather bumpy ride but being a boat lover it kept me happy. The mini bus is driven by a local who tells you all about the local wildlife and keeps you interested in your surroundings. He was witty too. The... More

Just Brilliant.From Start to Finish! Thanks to John the Light, John the Boat, and Reg the Bus for making the day a success. Oh err, and Him upstairs for the excellent weather. Views, sites and sights all that could be hoped for.+++++Recommended. Ignore the moaning minnies about lack of loos, what better opportunity to find a quite spot alone and... More
