Algemeen erkend als de zwaarste rugzaktocht in Groot Brittannië, de Cape Wrath Trail is een 3-weekse, 360 kilometer lange tocht van Fort William naar het meest noordwestelijke punt van het vasteland van Schotland.
- Winding through beautiful glens, lochs and mountains, it takes you to some of Scotlands finest country including Morar, Knoydart, Torridon and Assynt, before a spectacular finale at Cape Wrath
The inspiring sights range from the deep blue mirrors of hidden lochs to the unkempt expanse of mountain and moor, to the final cliff-top view of pewter sea. To reach them you will travel on ancient drover paths, through forested glens and across quintessential Highland
The Cape Wrath Trail offers an unparalleled level of freedom and adventure to an experienced trekker; with flexible routes, camping and days spent in inaccessible wilde.
A cautionary note it is with some justification that this trail is regarded as Britains toughest. It crosses rough, unforgiving country that should not be underestimated. There are no pack-carrying services and often there are not even any clear paths, only bogs and leg-sapping terrain. Limited re-supply points require self-sufficiency for much of the journey, and there will be stretches during which youll need to carry many days supplies. This is absolutely not a route for beginners or those unfamiliar with remote, rugged mountain areas.
This guidebook describes the route in detail over 14 stages with information about all the facilities and accommodation options en route, as well as guidance on preparation, planning and navigation.
