Scotland North Coast

Circumnavigations - Roof Of Britain

The Roof of Britain route takes in the rugged coastlines of the West and North of Scotland, closing the loop via the Caledonian Canal. At over 400 nm this is a significant but realistic venture. This trip nicely combines the relative shelter of the Caledonian Canal and Loch Ness with some of the most spectacular and exposed stretches of the UK coastline, including Cape Wrath and the infamous Pentland Firth.
