Cape Wrath Minibus service has been transporting travellers to and from Cape Wrath since the mid 1960s , and has been in the Mather family since the early 1980s .
I moved up from the central belt , back in 2012 , to drive on Cape Wrath for James Mather, who is a Durness man and also my cousin . Eleven years on , not only am i driving on Cape Wrath , but i am now running the show after James decided to take a step back from the business .
Coming from a construction background , PSV work was a complete change of career , and one I have not looked back on .
I have absolute passion for Cape Wrath and before the end of each season , I am already looking to the next .
Throughout my eleven years of driving , there is one question that keeps on croping up , and is asked the most , which is ...... " what do you do in the winter " ?
Well , since moving to Durness , I quickly realised that you cannot survive in this environment , doing only one thing , so coming from a construction background , I was able to put my other skills in to gooduse .
So to answer the most asked question , I have other work in wood , metal and specialising in fibreglass construction .
Local farms require stock fencing/ gates repaired and replaced , and I also work with the local bus company , with service and school runs . There is always somthing to be done .
So , if your looking for a days adventure and light entertainment , Cape Wrath is the place to be , so why not ...............
