In the summer of 2020, we three friends hiked the Cape Wrath Trail. It took us 13 days to complete. A full report will follow. However, since a video is a much better way to show you our adventure, below is our cinematic aftermovie of this epic adventure.

Brilliant video - so great to have your sumptuous drone footage, and love your sense of humour - key attribute for doing the trail. And to manage to film in the filthy weather captures the whole experience really well. Epic indeed.

Thanks Lads,
That was truly epic and brilliant to watch you enjoy the landscape of North West Scotland with just the right mixture of cynical good humour, fortitude and a genuine enjoyment of your surroundings. Take a bow!
