Ferry across Kyle of Durness

During the summer months, from May until September, a ferry runs across the Kyle of Durness from Keodale, near Durness in northwest Sutherland. From the ferry end, a minibus takes tourists along the rough road to Cape Wrath, Scotland's most north westerly point. The lighthouse at Cape Wrath was built in 1827-28 by engineer Robert Stevenson at a cost of £14,000. It was automated in 1998
