We are scheduled to operate 7 days a week from Easter until mid October and have buses available for 2 or 3 trips each day depending on the time of year (*see below). However for several reasons we may be unable fulfil this:
1) Weather - Your adventure to Cape Wrath includes a ferry crossing, which is directly affected by tides and weather conditions. Passenger saftey is first priority and so, there are times the ferry cannot run due to these factors. This cannot be helped unless you have a direct line to 'mother nature'!!!!
2) MOD - A large part of Cape Wrath is used as a Ministry of Defence training range. During military exercises our schedule can be disrupted and on occasions we can be prevented from operating altogether, see our "MOD" page.
3) Demand - we require a minimum of 4 adult return fares to operate.
* we will not be operating on Friday 27th July as it is "Games Day" and we will be supporting the annual Durness Highland Gathering - http://www.durnesshighlandgathering.co.uk/.
2018 schedule will be updated early in the New Year.
Times are approximate and will confirmed by the ferryman on a daily basis
(see note below)
The time of the next sailing will be written on the noticeboard at Keoldale jetty for you to check.
Ferry times may vary due to weather and tidal conditions, therefore as ferry sailing times vary , so do ours.
Ferry sailing times vary due to weather & tidal conditions.
There are also unforeseen circumstances, I.E live Military exercises, which affect both ferry and minibus services.
We , the minibus service require a minimum of 4 adult return fares to operate so sailing time may be delayed or postponed.
