Old Photograph Cape Wrath Hotel Sutherland Scotland
Old photograph the Cape Wrath Hotel in Sutherland, Scotland. Cape Wrath is a cape in the Durness parish of the county of Sutherland in the Highlands of Scotland. It is the most north westerly point in mainland Britain. Cape Wrath was once the home of a series of small crofting communities, although by 1845 the only families remaining were shepherds. The 200 year old, now closed, Cape Wrath Hotel was originally built as a factor's house by the Duke of Sutherland and operated as a fishing hotel from 1927. The hotel, which enjoys a superb position overlooking the Kyle of Durness, was run for many years by local man Jack Watson.
