The Cape Wrath Trail

Q. Seeking information on the Cape Wrath Trail for a trip home next year. Happy to swap information on Tramping in New Zealand.

Bill Munro, Sydney, Australia


A. The Cape Wrath Trail is a 330km (205 mile) footpath connecting Banavie in Highland with Cape Wrath in Highland, North Scotland.

Initially the route follows the Great Glen before turning north to cross Glen Garry, Glen Loyne and Glenshiel and then crossing wild and open country to Strathcarron, Torridon, Dundonnell (via the ferry) to reach Ullapool.

The coast is then followed to Cullnacraig. The Coigach and Assynt Hills are traversed before taking a high moorland route via Foinaven, Rhiconich, Kinlochbervie and Sandwood Bay before reaching Cape Wrath.

You'll need OS Landranger Maps: 9, 15, 19, 25, 33, 34 and 41.

Currently planning my 2012 December Cape Wrath Trek, home in time for turkey.

A. The Cape Wrath Trail is a 330km (205 miles) linear footpath connecting Cape Wrath, Highland, Scotland with Banavie (Fort William) in Highland, Scotland.

It is is considered to be one of the most challenging long distance walks in the UK.

Hope this helps
