This was a lovely trip with amazing scenery. Firstly we boarded a small ferry for about a 10 minute crossing and then boarded a bus for an hour long trip. The driver Alan kept everyone entertained and informed with his commentary. It is a beautiful...More

As the name suggests if you visit on a stormy day but at the same time if its a calm sunny day it is such a quiet peaceful place to relax and soak up stunning scenery

Surely the main reason to visit Cape Wrath is that it is the extreme north-west of the U.K, so it would be fair to compare with other places one might go for similar reasons e.g. John O'Groats and Lands End - only there is no...More

This trip is a brilliant adventure - the drive take over an hour to go eleven miles but with a great guide talking you through the wildlife and history of the place. The Cape has stunning views and there is a nice cafe too. I...More

Always wanted to see Cape Wrath. Was holidaying in the area so took the ferry + minibus trip (£19 adult, £10 child) from Keodale, south of Durness. The ferry is a short 5/10 minute trip, the bus journey about an hour along a rough road....More

We eventually got over to Cape Wrath - but not before we had wasted most of the morning waiting for a boat! It was a worthwhile experience in that we were driven to Cape Wrath by ex- military which proved interesting in itself - we...More

Travelled on the organised ferry and bus - no other option really. The scenery was terrific, otherwise everything else was appalling, starting with 11 miles there, and 11 miles back on an old rickety mini-bus over a road that is not - it is just...More

Hi, Using the word " rickety" may be your opinion. I wonder how qualified you are to make this assumption? VOSA don't seem to think so having issued a psv MOT for them. Frankly I don't think so either, having many years of experience in...More

Had a great Cape Wrath trip on a lovely summer's day in July 2017. The Ferryman has effectively a monopoly on the Ferry trip - so can charge expensive prices for a short 5 minute journey (£7 adult return and £5 child return). The mini-bus...More
