Finally got to Cape Wrath today, to start the trip proper. Getting there involves a tiny, infrequent ferry boat from Durness across to the virtually uninhabited Cape Wrath peninsula.
On the peninsula itself, it’s a desolate 11-mile track to the lighthouse, the notional most north-westerly point on the British mainland.
Everyone else on the boat was going by minibus, so I had the road to myself both ways. It was all a bit fab.
Miles today: 26
Miles since Cape Wrath: 13
