Excellent trip across to Skye on the ferry. Speed bonny boat like a bird on the wing over the sea to Skye. Waa!!
A unique experience as one of the last remaining turntable ferries! A nice ride across where you can see the seals playing and the diverse macroalgae/seaweed growing on the rocks. 6 cars per run and totally worth the cost to keep this father-son operation in business. And a much more classical way to get to/from Skye rather than the bridge... More
It is quite costly but it's a community run ferry and it's a great little trip - only a few cars can fit on there but well worth it! Great remote drive when you get on to Skye with some amazing views.
What a fantastic way to get to Skye! This should not be missed by anyone who is more into the journey than the destination! Yes, the road is narrow and it takes longer but oh my goodness the views! Such nice people at the ferry too! They are friendly and efficient. Do not miss this experience!
A very short crossing (great for folks like me that don't really like boats) with the most beautiful scenery. The drive across Mam Rattigan is a bit hairy, but the views far outweigh this - TAKE YOUR TIME. Disappointed not to see the sea eagle, otter or any other wildlife mentioned on site, but after all it was October! Will... More
If going to Skye or coming off it, take the ferry and support the last one of its kind in Britain. It also is community owned so you help the community a bit. Beyond that the road on either side is single track for miles and it is one of the most atmospheric ways to experience Skye and Scotland... the... More
This ferry is a bit of history as the last hand-cranked turntable ferry, and everything about taking the ferry--wending our way through Glen Beag, the crossing itself, the twisting single track road to Kylerhea on the other side--is breathtaking. The crossing itself doesn't take long, but part of the fun was watching other passengers make the trek: the tide was... More
We were staying in glenelg, so this was the only logical way to travel to Skye. But on the way back we arrived on the Skye side at 17.48 and were worried that we were too late to catch the last crossing. Not to worry because the nice ferry people saw us from glenelg and came across to fetch us... More
We tend to stay at Ferry House (also 5*), and the ferry is an entertainment to watch as well as a handy way to get to Skye. It takes me back to holidays at Ballachulish when it still operated there
We loved this wee ferry trip and the spectacular single track roads on either side. The ferry's hydraulic turntable design is something special in this hi-tech day and age. We'll be doing it again soon! (£14 for our SUV is good value).
