Cape Wrath

A wilderness in the Scottish Highlands

Cape Wrath Lighthouse, Cape Wrath, Scotland

 

Cape Wrath is derived from the old norse for "Turning Point", highlighting its significance 1,000s of years ago to Viking explorers from Scandinavia.  It was once a populated community but now its a rough and rugged terain.

 

It is a site of special scientific interest (SSSI) and a special protection area for birds with 10s of 1000s of breeding birds on its cliffs including puffins, razor bills, fulmars, kittiwakes and guillemots.

 

It's a Ministry of Defence training area for British & International troops.  Cape Wrath's remote location & difficult terrain combined with the extreme nature of weather conditions makes it an excellent enviroment to test someone's ability to survive.

 

With isolated beaches, a vast wilderness, an untouched landscape and its location at the north west point of the Scottish mainland, Cape Wrath is a place of outstanding natural beauty and a powerful, intriguing place to visit.  Take a trip with us to see for yourself!
