Cape Wrath Walking Weekend
Cape Wrath - Sandwood Bay - Sheigra
We will meet you at the Rhiconich Hotel at 3pm. Drive to our car park, unload your equipment into our vehicle, then there is a 10 minute walk on footpath to Ridgway Adventure. (Please note it is not possible to drive to our base.) Meet our staff and settle in over a cup of tea followed by a short introductory walk to see the area we will be walking. After dinner we plan our route and prepare for departure the following morning.
After crossing the Kyle of Durness by ferry, we take the minibus to Kearvaig and walk the sea cliffs to Cape Wrath light house. From Cape Wrath we walk southwards to the wide golden strand of Sandwood bay where our support team set up camp for our arrival. Spend the night where Viking longships landed and savour stunning isolation.
Pack up camp and enjoy the beach before a leisurely walk along the cliffs southwards to Sheigra. Here our support team will collect us. After hot showers and tea at Cape Adventure, relax in front of our wood burning stove before a well deserved home-cooked dinner.
Depart after breakfast.
