  • Updates from the trail

    It's been nearly six months since the guide was published and I've been overwhelmed by the response from Cape Wrath Trailers around the world.

    My intention was to write a very practical guide for walkers attempting the trail, and it seems like the new guide has hit the spot.

    That said, as a first edition there are a good few errors in there (in truth, a few more than I would ideally have liked), and many thanks to those of you who have got in touch about these via the forum. These and many other improvements will be rolled in to the second edition.

    The website is going from strength to strength, and as was always the intention, most stages now have a number of comments that reflect advice or updates from the trail.

    The popular BBC programme Coast is planning to film a mini expedition with presenter Nick Crane walking between Sandwood Bay and Cape Wrath. Watch out for this coming to your screens later in the year as part of an episode about coastal paths.
