Cape Wrath and Kearvaig Bothy

Cape Wrath is the most North-Westerly point in mainland UK. To get there it takes a short ferry journey across the Kyle of Durness and an 11 mile bus journey along a very rough road. More about the history of the lighthouse.

Kearvaig Bothy is located about two miles east of Cape Wrath. It is well maintained by the Mountain Bothy Association.
