We walked the Cape Wrath Trail, starting from For William and finishing in the little Cafe. It was an intense journey, but the crown and glory was the stay at the Cafe. John went out of his way to make us feel welcome, he fed us great food, even offered us bubbly to celebrate the hike, made sure we were... 更多
May 2016 We were staying at the nearby Sango Sands campsite as part of a tour of Scotland with an old friend - her in her campervan and us in our caravan. We had heard of Cape Wrath and the stretch of road that is not connected to any other road and thought that we'd visit. We caught the ferry... 更多
We hiked the Cape Wrath Trail starting in Fort William. On the last day of hiking we arrived at Cape Wrath some time before noon - and were warmly greeted by the kind owner of the Ozone Café. We spent several hours there, enjoying sandwiches, crisps, hot chocolate and tea until we got the chance to catch a ride on... 更多
Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Little boat across the Kyle - only 4 at a time then on the minibus for the 11 miles to the light house ( bumpy hour journey). The guide was great, friendly and interesting, Loved the place - so bleak and desolate with no-one living their permanently. Saw the lighthouse on a gorgeous sunny day -... 更多
My son and I were camping for a couple of days at Sandwood Bay. We were blessed with lovely sunny days (and very cold nights!). We walked up to Cape Wrath - a walk not to be under-estimated as there are no paths and a lot of boggy terrain. It took the full 4.5 hours suggested on Walkhighlands website. Arriving... 更多
You cannot drive to the tip of Cape Wrath or any where near it. You would think you could because there is a signpost off the main road at Keoldale Green, but this is a cul-de-sac stopping at the ferry. There is the problem, if it is too windy, the ferry doesn't sail, so you cant cross to the bus... 更多
Beautiful day in the sun at the end of the season. Excellent commentary on the history of Cape Wrath and the lighthouse by the bus service. Plenty of deer near the lighthouse. And the seals popped up at the light minute!
Stuart gave a fascinating commentary during our trip to and from Cape Wrath - an hour long 11 mile drive on a rough track to a beautiful coastal viewpoint.
If you are hoping for a luxury trip, don't bother, you won't enjoy a visit to Cape Wrath. However, if you want great scenery and friendly staff along with a fun and not too taxing experience this may be the trip for you. For the end of the season it was quite busy and space is limited so you might... 更多
We were lucky enough to get on the first ferry and away we went in the minibus with Dan. Great commentary all the way there and back (11 miles each way), learnt a lot, saw a lot too. Views from the edge were out of this world, weather did turn a bit while we were up there but did not... 更多
