Cape Wrath Trail

The Cape Wrath Trail is often considered the hardest long distance trek in the UK. The challenge of this trail is equally matched by its breath-taking scenery, making it one of the most wild and beautiful places in the UK. We offer The Cape Wrath Trail over 3 stages (which can be combined together for those that would like to complete the full trek in one go). For the majority of our customers The Cape Wrath Trail South & North is their complete Cape Wrath Trail adventure. Our Cape Trail Expedition is a bonus sections for those wishing to explore that little bit further.
