From 1st June we intend to run a service to and from Cape Wrath, albeit reduced capacity due to distancing guidance.
Start time will be according to ferry times which is currently 10.00 am .
On a serious note...
While we are doing what we can to provide for those who want to go to Cape Wrath and those who are completing the iconic Cape Wrath trail, needing transport back to the ferry point, our capacity is greatly reduced and the first 3 weeks will be trial weeks. We will undoubtedly incur hiccups which we will have to find our way around them. Please bear with us and very importantly, please do not vent any frustrations from the situation at ferryman , nor bus drivers. This kind of behaviour is not helpful and wholly unacceptable. If you have a problem, speak to me (James) and we will do everything we can to sort things out. These are still uncertain times and we must go forward with caution.
Before entering our minibus, you must put on a face covering and be prepared to keep it on for the duration of the trip (circa 1hr 5 mins each way). You must also sanitise your hands (available at entry point).
plus pick up/set down for walkers.
Cape Wrath is one of Britan's iconic cornerstones where the north and west coasts of Scotland meet. There are stunning & spectactular views with dramatic coastlines, the expansive Atlantic Ocean and a vast moorland wilderness all in one place. There is no land mass between here and the Arctic, Orkney can be seen to the north east and the Westen Isles viewed to the south west.
Cape Wrath is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, SSSI as well as a Special Protection Area for birds.
In addition to this, there are much coveted geological features; it is steeped in heritage and of worldwide maritime significance.
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. Our bus service provides a tour along the 11 mile track.
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.
" very knowledgeable commentary supplemented with excellent Scottish humor"
"Very informative, funny & full of interesting facts about the area"
'Ozone cafe' provide toilet facilities at Cape Wrath. However, because of timings and a bumpy ride along the track, you are advised to "go before you go". Public toilets are situated in Durness village , beside the 'spar' shop.
