Experience the most north-westerly point on the British mainland - Cape Wrath.
Some 18 kilometers from Durness, this mini-bus service will allow for easy access to one of the remotest areas in Britain.
Scotland's most north westerly point can be reached by a bus journey of about 11 miles through wild unspoiled scenery.
Some of Britain's highest cliffs, seabirds, wildlife, seals and the spectacular Cape Wrath Lighthouse can be experienced here.
The area is also home to a variety of Arctic and Alpine plants can be found on the Cape growing at sea level. This combination is unique to this area and for this reason, much of the Cape Wrath area is designated as a SSSI (Special Site of Scientific Interest.)
A major interest in this district is in arctic and alpine plant species. Plants such as Moss Campion, Mountain Avens and Purple Saxifrage which usually occur on high hills, are found here almost down to sea level because of the suitable bedrock and severity of the weather.
The frequency of the summer season ferry service is very much dependant on the state of the tide and weather conditions - although in general, the operators attempt to keep to the following timetable;
May - first sailing, 11:00 am and on demand thereafter.
June, July & August - first sailing, 09:30 am.
September - first sailing 09:30 am until mid-September when it reverts to 11:00 am for the remainder of the season.
Sunday sailings from 11:00 am onwards.
