Cape Wrath

Highly recommended
Cape Wrath stands west of Durness and marks the extreme northwest of Scotland. Protected by the Clo Mor cliffs, which, at 281m high, are the highest in Britain, the cape is home to a colony of seabirds. To get here, you take the ferryboat from Keodale, then a minibus across the bleak moorland. You will be rewarded by the outstanding views extending out to sea beyond the lighthouse. To the south lies the wonderfully rugged area of the Parbh.
