A very forlorn feel to this bumpy journey out the Cape Wrath penninsula to the lighthouse. We took a chance going on a misty morning, hoping that the fog would lift... The ferry trip over was short but nice and the mini bus journey entertaining. The bus driver was very funny. We could hardly see the lighthouse from the cafe... More

For the lucky few that are allowed on the ferry, I'm sure you had a great time. Alas on my one change to visit Cape Wrath we weren't allowed on the ferry due to the mini bus limit of 16 persons. Ever worse I feel for the Italian family of 4 (with 2 small kids) that couldn't go as the... More

These pods were in immaculate condition and the hospitality was absolutely phenomenal! The rate is really quite low, I would recommend this trip without hesitation, it exceeded all our expectations! Keravaig bay and daill were fantastic!

We took the ferry from durness, then walked to the cape for about 4 and a half hours under heavy rain. The scenery is beautiful so it's worth walking instead of taking the minibus. We saw a lot of sheep, seals and deer along the way. Arriving at the lighthouse we were unsure how to spend the night but it... More

We took the ferry to go to cape wrath where our guide Stuart was waiting for us to go in the bus to the lighthouse. Stuart is very entertaining and the tour will not disappoint at all! The nature at Cape Wrath is beautiful, and the views even more. We saw some red deer and other birds, more than we... More

My husband and I decided to ride to the lighthouse and back for the day! We enjoyed our ferry across to cape wrath and then the bone shaking roads started! It was a hard slog to cycle on these roads but an amazing experience to sample such remoteness. What helped as well was knowing the bus drivers were willing to... More

We got the ferry to Wrath, the minibus to the lighthouse then walked/ran the 11.5 miles back to the ferry. Absolutely brilliant experience, so glad we went. Thanks to James from the lighthouse, John the ferryman and Stuart the minibus driver from Methil. Absolutely brilliant service from them all. Zoe & Elaine from Fife

This was a fantastic experience - from the ferry boat to the lighthouse! This is a cultural delight , highland style ! This is not a big city business but a local business and has to be appreciated as such - the ferry boat and ferry man is an experience in itself , straightforward , down to earth and all... More

Hiked the Cape Wrath trail and arrived on the afternoon to a lovely cup of hot chocolate with super kind and helpful cafe owner John who works at the cape. Great curry, great coffee what more can you ask?

You can't book the trip to cape wrath you just turn up at the ferry point. Get in touch before you travel as the ferry times depend on weather and tides. It was £6.50 each return for the ferry and £12 return for the bus. Our coach driver was Stuart and he was hilarious, passing on information and telling jokes... More
