So if you've come this far, don't miss out ,,,,,,, take a trip to the edge with us!
Access to Cape Wrath is challenging for many reasons including its remote location. There is only one road and it is separated from the main road network by the Kyle of Durness. There is no transportation method for public vehicles to reach it. The only way to access the road without hiking over moorland is by the Cape Wrath Ferry, a foot passenger only boat, which crosses the Kyle of Durness . Once there , our bus driver will arrange your safe passage along the 11 mile track to the most North West tip of the British mainland .
Remember, Cape Wrath Mini Bus is the only vehicular option available to the public on Cape Wrath Peninsula!
A trip on our bus includes vehicular access to the most north westerly point of the Scottish Mainland and a friendly bus driver who will provide informative commentary so you can learn about the area, past & present, and don't miss any places of interest along the way.

However, whilst this will still only cost one return fare per person, you will be allocated the next available seat. If returning on a different day , the fare will be a single fare per person, then a singe fare the next day you use our service , again it will be first available seats as there is no booking system .
