Cape Wrath is the most north-westerly point on the British mainland. Iceland is approximately 519 km / 509 miles away. The name Cape Wrath is believed to be from Old Norse (havrf) ("turning point"). The Vikings are believed to have used the Cape as a navigation point where they would turn their ships and head for home. The sea cliffs around the cape rise up to 281 metres (922 ft) above sea level and include the highest sea cliffs on the British mainlandMore pictures of Cape Wrath Lighthouse by Karen Lee...
