Welcome to my Walk


Overview of Bob's Cape Wrath Trail routeAt present the Cape Wrath Trail is more a concept than a reality. There is not a definitive route from Fort William to Cape Wrath, the attraction is to create your own Cape Wrath Trail.

This is my Cape Wrath Trail, which I walked alone and unsupported in 2004. Starting on Thursday 6th May from Banavie station Fort William and reaching Cape Wrath late morning on Tuesday 18th May.

I kept a daily log on the walk and in the months that followed I expanded this into a ‘warts and all’ account of the walk. Although I had done other solo back packing trips before and after, this Cape Wrath Trail stands above the others because as ‘straight line’ walks go this is hard to beat, passing as it does through some of the most remote and challenging
areas left in the U.K.
