I had always wanted to travel to Cape Wrath - the most north westerly point of mainland UK - as it seemed like a wonderful remote destination. I remember watching the Coast programme about this corner of Scotland and it seemed almost romantically inaccessible. However...More

Tried for 3 days in a row in August and never got across deep contacting the ferryman as the board states. He doesn't reply. Spoke face to face with him on 1st day at 12.30pm saying return next day at 8:30. Did so only to...More

As the passenger ferry can’t be booked in advance it is a leap of faith that I would make it to Cape Wrath. I needn’t have worried as the ferry made two trips and passengers were transported in 2 minibuses. This was on a Sunday...More

On your way to Cape Wrath, please take the time to really appreciate the area around the starting point to your trip. The Kyle of Durness is a truly beautiful stretch of water, with great ribbons of golden sand contrasting perfectly with the blue sea....More

Hi there. Thank you for your kind words. One small question tho if I may? Are you sure you were charged £13.50? Our trip costs £13.00 as stated on the return tickets we issue to every customer. Maybe this is a typo? Many thanks, James

Really enjoyable trip ( nearly 4 hours ), first by boat from Keoldale slipway across the Kyle of Durness ( £7.50 return ), and then by minibus along the 11 miles of very bumpy 'road' to the Cape Wrath Lighthouse ( £13.00 return ). The...More

It is a hard place to get to as you have to take a small open ferry which may or may not run due to weather. Then you take a bouncy small bus ride over a two track tippy and bouncy road. The bus driver...More

OK, so we were lucky with the weather when we visited, but even if it had been 'blowing a hoolie', we still would give this five stars. If you want the wild wilderness of Scotland, then this is the trip for you. I'd suggest you...More

They do have a larger boat that can hold 12 plus the ferryman. However in 7 or 8 years of going there, this year was the first time I saw it used but yes, it's a boat and not a large "Calmac" type ferry ;)
