The Cape Wrath Trail is an unofficial walking route through the Scottish Highlands of Northern Scotland. It runs along the west coast until the terminus at the Cape Wrath lighthouse at the northwestern tip of the mainland. The southern section of the trail has a few possible routes available for hikers, as their is no official route. Many consider this trail to be one of the most difficult trails in the United Kingdom. It traverses difficult terrain native to the Highlands, while also going through very remote areas of the region. Due to this, accomodation and developed facilities are more difficult to obtain. The wet weather of this area is also exacerbated in this remote terrain, bringing a higher risk of severe weather conditions.
