Experienced a lovely short ferry crossing with friendly ferrymen. The ferry holds four vehicles and foot passengers. Like going back in time, lovely way to travel across to Skye. We went on foot and it was about £4 each. Crossings approximately every twenty minutes. Car park on the mainland side. Well worth doing.

We loved our first trip so much we made a point of doing it again this trip! If you enjoy doing something special rather than doing it easy then this is for you. The views to and from the ferry cannot be beat. Riding on the last turntable ferry in Scotland is something you will always remember. Super nice and... More

It is worth a visit solely for the ferry and supporting the work done to keep it going. Also the lovely journey on either side, on single track roads, is beautiful and worth a drive. And once there we were able to watch seals hunting. Fabulous and a real highlight.

A fantastic service, the last remaining turntable ferry in the world. We made a last minute decision to take this ferry rather than use the bigger ferry out of Malliag and don't regret the decision at all. The crossing is so much nicer, it was quick with very little wait time and the fare was much more reasonable. If you're... More

What a great experience! Taking the turn table ferry was fun experience. Didn't know they still existed. The view was absolutely stunning. Staff was very friendly. Glenelg in itself was a true gem to experience.

If you can cope with narrow winding mountain roads to an d from this ferry it really is worth the effort. The lighthouse at Glenelg gives information about the otters which were featured here & the history of the lighthouse. everything is done on a trust, volunteer and self help basis. whilst waiting for the ferry one can see seals...
