Cicerone Guide Book: Cape Wrath Trail 2nd Edition

by Iain Harper

A guidebook to the Cape Wrath Trail, a long-distance trek through the Scottish Highlands from Fort William to Cape Wrath.


The Cape Wrath Trail is a 230-mile, three-week challenge through wild and magnificent landscapes, such as Morar, Knoydart, Torridon and Assynt.

Crossing such empty country, it is for the experienced backpacker only.


Long-distance walking and backpacking


Seasons

April, May and June are ideal months to walk the trail. September and October are also good, but there may be diversions due to deer stalking and military operations at the cape.

In July and August the days are superbly long and the weather can be fine, but midges will be in full flight.

The limited accommodation along the trail may also be booked up at this time of year

 

Centres

Fort William, Glenfinnan, Barisdale, Kinloch Hourn, Shiel Bridge, Strathcarron, Kinlochewe, Dundonnell, Ullapool, Bridge of Orchy, Inchnadamph, Kylesku, Rhiconich, Kinlochbervie, Durness


Difficulty

The Cape Wrath Trail is regarded as the toughest long distance backpacking trail in Britain.

It crosses remote, sparsely populated, potentially dangerous mountain country.

There are no pack carrying services and often no clear paths.

Limited re-supply points require self sufficiency for many days together.

Not a route for beginners or those unfamiliar with remote, rugged mountain areas

 

Must See

Glenfinnan monument and viaduct, the gloriously remote rough bounds of Knoydart, Barisdale, Forcan ridge, Falls of Glomach, Beinn Eighe, Lochan Fada, Shenavall, An Teallach, Glen Douchary, Glen Oykel, Ben More, Glencoul, Arkle, Foinaven, Sandwood Bay, Cape Wrath lighthouse
