Cape Wrath – Sandwood Bay

Just back from Sandwood Bay a few miles south of Cape Wrath. A friend of mine has been nibbling away at the Cape Wrath Trail in sections for a few years and this last weekend was the culmination of a load of effort, walking from Fort William to Cape Wrath.


Sandwood Bay is a truly awesome and inspiring spot. The open Atlantic Ocean to the north and west and nothing in between until North America or the Arctic, Iceland and Greenland. These photos were taken last Saturday after a wicked storm had swept across Britain.

Am Buachaille, first climbed by Ian Clough and Tom Patey.

Tidal and sea state restrictions make this stack a problem to access.
