After he retired, Alex's Grandad went on a trip from the Midlands up to Cape Wrath, the most north-westerly point of his native Scotland. He sat, looked at the sea, and thought about his life. Then he got up and went home. Over 20 years later, Alex got on a coach and followed in his footsteps. This is what he learned. Cape Wrath is a story of family, of fellow travellers, of whisky and chocolate, of the longest bus journey in Britain, told to an audience of just 14. Completely sold out for its run at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013, Cape Wrath is heartfelt, moving and funny. A compellingly intimate journey to the edge of the island.

'This charming, totally involving show…a must-see.' The Skinny 'This enchanting ride.' Exeunt Magazine
