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

I spent the night in the wooden pods over at Cape Wrath. It felt so pleasantly remote and I personally enjoyed the mix of sunshine and full blown wind & rain. The road from the Kyle of Durness to the cape is terrible! However there is enough to see on the way to make the journey pass quickly. The cape... More

Staying in durness we decided to visit cape wrath. It's reacted by a short boat ride and a 1 hour minibus ride. The staff are well versed in the history of the lighthouse and it's story and full of banter. They made my 5 year old daughter feel very special. Around £ 50 for 2 adults and 1 child, it's... More

We were fortunate to be in the area on a nice day and took the boat/mini bus trip one morning. The trip lasted for the morning and included a short boat ride then 2-hour round trip on a mini bus across the MOD firing range (not in action that day!) to the lighthouse at the northern tip. Fabulous sea views,... More

My 19 year old twins have cycled from Lands End to Dover, round the SE corner of UK to Cape Wrath and will go onto John O Groats tomorrow to raise money for Alzheimers. Because they are unsupported in this ride they had to ride to Cape Wrath on road bikes not mountain bikes. Both the minibus driver and the... More

We arrived at 0800 for the first boat over at 0900. Times can alter slightly with the tides. You can contact James through the number on the website, I sent him a text to which he replied very quickly. We were the first people there. In the school holidays it may be more crowded. There were thirteen people on our... More

We visited on a misty day so missed out on the great views from the lighthouse. The ferry and minibus drivers are real characters and full of stories about the history of the place. Another box ticked though!

Brilliant wee adventure today to get to Cape Wrath and back. Dingy's, minibus, unclassified roads and through the MOD live firing range. Great fun and stunning views at the most North Westerly point of the UK mainland. The trip was also very interesting with a full commentary on the bus. The cafe at the lighthouse makes sandwiches etc fresh will... More
