The drive down to the ferry was an experience; it is a single track road like many of the roads on Skye but twistier than the others we'd driven along. However, the views are amazing. We were there slightly later in the day so the shop wasn't open when we got to the other side. The ferry itself was good... More

On our way back from Skye, we decided to take the Skye Ferry, as it would cut our driving time. We were also planning to visit Glenfinan Monument and Neptune's staircase, which would be on our way to Edinburgh if we took that ferry. I did all of my research online and found the Skye ferry website at http://www.skyeferry.co.uk/service.html .... More

This is one of the things you must do if you are in this area. Firstly it is a way of travelling to Skye that is just a bit different and a way to experience of how it used to be before the bridge was built. The drive to and from this ferry is an experience in itself but it... More

I went across on 31st August, and the rain was pouring and the wind was blowing, but but it was still incredibly beautiful! I was driving an old car (1960's) and the team were incredibly interested in it given it was 9 years older than the ferry! They were great, and I hope to return again. The drive down to... More

We crossed on the Skye ferry in June and it was such fun, there were a very lively and interesting crew who pointed out sea eagles and sea otters and chatted about the area. A memorable experience

This is one of the most unique experiences I have had in a long time. It is a roundabout ferry for cars across the Sound of Sleat. There were otters in the water and when you get to Skye...oh the road is a heart-stopping, incredibly fun over the hills ride into the main part of Skye. Ride the ferry back... More

Much more convenient in relation to where we were staying - only snag was we misjudged the return journey and missed the last crossing back to the mainland. Nobody's fault but our own though!

Was staying in Mallaig for a few days, took the ferry one day on foot, but it was very quiet on landing in skye, so went another day with my car. It far preferable to take a short ferry trip than drive miles and miles to get to a bridge crossing, We had an interesting trip and found a lovely... More
