Our ‘Cape Wrath Explorer Tour’ offers some of the most stunning scenery in the region. We leave from the fishing hamlet of Kylesku before heading to the seabird city of Handa Island and its Great Stack, standing 70 meters above sea level. Nestled in between two of Handa’s sheer cliff faces and thought to have been first climbed 140 years ago, it has become a legendary climbing challenge. This is only achievable within the winter months as the stack is heavily populated by nesting seabirds from April – September.

After taking time to enjoy the birds we will head north to the stunning Sandwood Bay. Voted to be one of the most stunning beaches in Britain, Sandwood stretches for a mile and a half.

Just a little further north we will then make our way to Cape Wrath, the most north-westerly point in mainland Britain. Here we aim to get up close to the fantastic cliffs and rarely visited arches.

The Cape has several designations such as a Site of Scientific Interest, a Special Protection area and an area of conservation. Its remote and dramatic cliffs are home to an estimated 50,000 nesting sea birds, including Golden Eagles, and a lighthouse built in 1828 by the famous Robert Stephenson still stands.

Next we return to Kylesku via the secluded Badcall Bay and its surrounding islands, designated as Scotland’s first ‘Global Geopark’ for its outstanding natural beauty!
