A fabulous week of trekking from Ullapool to Cape Wrath


We start our trek on Saturday afternoon when we cover the first stretch from Ullapool to Strathcanaird.

The following days we will trek across the haunting moors of Assynt to reach Ledmore, then Inchnadamph, Kylesku, Achfary and on to just northeast of Riconich. This is wild walking but we make use of old paths and tracks.

On our last day we tackle the classic walk encompassing Sandwood Bay and Cape Wrath. This is arguably one of the highlights of the trek with dramatic coastal scenery, towering sea stacks and shimmering beaches bounded by the Atlantic Ocean.

The trip is based in Ullapool & Scourie with the walks being minibus supported. This means you will only have to carry a daypack and you will be picked-up and dropped off at the start/finish of each walk.
