Iain Harper first set out to walk the Cape Wrath Trail in 2008. As the only time of the year he could do it was December, he gamely set off, only to be beaten back by a severe winter storm. A year later he gave it another shot and finally reached the cape one Christmas Day. Since then he has walked it many times. Having amassed a great deal of research and information he approached Cicerone to completely update and re-write the venerable North to the Cape. Iain has walked extensively in the Scottish Highlands for 20 years but lives and works in the Cotswolds. When not walking he can be found running ultra marathons (he completed the West Highland Way Race in 2011). He is married to Kay.
