Hiking the Cape Wrath Trail Video

© Hounds of Howgate

John and his trusty companion Moss embark on the Cape Wrath Trail, starting from Fort William and ending up in the far north of Scotland at Cape Wrath. The route is approximately 230 miles long, unmarked and you have the Scottish weather with which to contend.

The CWT rarely goes above the 700m contour and the standard route doesn't pass over any summits, although the route can be deceptively difficult. Midges and wet feet are as challenging as the route itself, but the payoff of stunning scenery and rare solitude appears to make it all worthwhile.

In the video series below, John and Moss hike the trail and describe its challenges, showing the stunning scenery along the way.

The video is the first in a series of 15, each covering a day on the trail. The next in the series should play automatically:
