- The Cape Wrath Trail is an unofficial long distance trek through the north west Highlands of Scotland and one of the finest long distance walks in the world. Over 200 miles the trek winds its way north from Fort William, taking in spectacular scenery and passing through some of the wildest and most remote parts of the UK, before finally reaching Cape Wrath, the most north westerly point on the British mainland.
- As a relatively new trek there are no waymarks and no official route. This means we are free to choose our exact path as we journey further north. The remoteness also demands a certain degree of self sufficiency – there are a few points to restock food but we will still have to carry enough to last up to six days at a time, along with all our camping gear as we will be camping wild most nights. This really will be a full on adventure!
- To complete the whole route at once would require nearly three weeks of walking. So instead, we will do the route one week at a time over the next three years, starting in 2017 with Fort William to Shiel Bridge. This first leg of the route will take us five days to complete, and will include three nights camping wild and one night in Corryhully bothy.
