Visit Cape Wrath

Easter (10th April) - Mid October 2020 - 7 days a week

We are scheduled to operate 7 days a week from Easter until mid October and have 2 minibuses available for  either 2, or 3 trips each day, depending on demand. (*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 24th July as it is "Games Day" and we will be supporting the annual Durness Highland Gathering -


2020.  First ferry- 9.00am daily (7 days)



Further ferry times for any given day will confirmed by the ferryman .

(see note below)

How do I obtain an update on ferry times?

The time of the next sailing will be written on the noticeboard at Keoldale jetty for you to check. 

Contact ferry on. 07719544207 

Why can't you provide confirmed bus trip times?

Ferry times may vary due to weather and tidal conditions,  therefore as ferry sailing times vary , so do ours. 

Why do ferry sailing times change?

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. 

4 points to note:

  • The ferryman decides the sailing times 
  • The ferry crossing time is approximately  10 mins
  • It takes more than 1 ferry crossing to fill all 16 bus seats, so please be patient. 
  • The bus will take approximately 3hrs to get back to the ferry point from the time it started out..
