The Cape Wrath Trail, Britain’s toughest long distance walk, stretches 230 miles through the West Highlands Fort William to the remote lighthouse of Cape Wrath, it is an unmarked and sometimes trailless route.
Tomorrow, I’ll begin a walk in Scotland’s West Highlands on the hardest route in the British Isles.
After a ferry across the loch, it’s easy on track past crashing falls to a locked bothy in wind and rain.
The first climb is easy if wet to the bealach as the rain comes and goes to the first bothy.
Continuing the ‘sampler,’ we walk to a lovely bothy but are kept awake by obnoxious hikers after midnight.
It’s dead easy walking on track with fall colors to the loch, then back to a gorgeously restored bothy.
It’s an easy day on farm road along a beautiful fishing river in fall colors and horrendous rain.
