Attraction Information

  • Parks and Playgrounds icon Parks and Playgrounds

Suitable for ages: Older Children (9-12) and Teenagers (13-18)

Venue type: Outdoor

Cape Wrath, Scotland's most north westerly point, can only be reached by a bus journey of about 11 miles through wild unspoiled scenery. Some of Britain's highest cliffs, seabirds, wildlife, seals and the spectacular Cape Wrath Lighthouse.

To access the Cape Wrath you must first take a ferry across the Kyle of Durness which takes about a quarter of an hour so fine for even small and fidgety kids!

On completion of the ferry trip there is an optional bus which takes you to the Cape Wrath Lighthouse.

The bus trip takes around about half an hour each way, so the entire excursion takes approximately 2 and a half hours. During the crossing amongst the beautiful scenery you are highly likely to see Common Seals so keep them peeled! Daill beach is a beautiful secluded spot easily accessed from the ferry point too.

To confirm bus schedule during range operations contact Minibus Service To Cape Wrath Mrs Mackay, or for the Ferry details John Morrison. It's well worth noting that they do not currently take individual bookings, one must hire the entire bus, so either take a group with you or ring them for advice!
