A Cape Wrath Trail walking holiday
Our Cape Wrath Trail is rapidly becoming a much sought after prize by many walkers. It is probably the most adventurous and wildest trek within the UK. Yet it is very achievable for regular walkers when walked over 14 one-day stages.
It is a route of incomparable contrasts, of wild passes and lonely glens, of some rough walking but awe-inspiring wild mountains and stunning coastlines. The isolation and remoteness is incomparable.
Although our Cape Wrath Trail is not a waymarked trail (and doesn’t even follow a path for much of the way) it is becoming recognised as the ultimate UK achievement for long distance walkers. Our experienced and qualified guide takes care of the tricky navigation which may be encountered on the open pathless hill and moorland sections, enabling you to fully enjoy the walking experience to its fullest.
Logistics are complicated in this part of the country with accommodation being sparse and usually not where you want it to be. Our dedicated support manager is able to solve these problems by providing mini-bus transport and a baggage carrying service as well as serving sumptuous meals at the end of a long day’s walking.
The opportunity for wild-life spotting is considerable. We pass through habitats where one would not be surprised to see creatures like – red deer, golden eagles, ptarmigan, otters, seals, basking sharks… to name but a few. Our knowledgeable guide will help you make the most of these opportunities.
Our Cape Wrath Trail route from Inverie on the Knoydart Peninsula to Cape Wrath in the far North West corner passes through 170 miles of fascinating wild landscapes and ever changing vistas. It’s hard to believe there is so much wild, untamed terrain in the UK, and as part of our small group (maximum 7) you can be there!
We regret that due to the rough, pathless nature of much of the terrain and the accommodation / transport logistics, this route is not available on a self-guided basis.
