Glenelg Attractions: What to do & Places to Visit in Glenelg
"Our friends in Sky recommended we take this route back to the mainland...and it certainly was well worth it !!! The drive in Sky on a single track road is very scenic. The ferry is extremely quaint. Fits only about 3-4 cars and not easy to get in or out, depending on the tide. The 2 people manning i..."t are very friendly and guide you all the way. Crossing is very short..about 10-15 minutes. Once on the mainland make your way to the Genelg Inn!!!

"The two brochs at Glenelg are among the tallest dry-stone structures ever built. I didn't know what a broch was before I visited, but the sign-boards provided sufficient background for me to appreciate what I was looking at.
The one you get to first is the better-preserved of the two (I believe i..."t to be the best-preserved broch on the mainland), which makes the second seem a little anti-climatic, but there's more of the internal structure visible in the second one.

"This ferry will never be the quickest or most practical way to get to Skye, but if you're not in a hurry, then it's well worth the detour. The ferry is a turntable (hand-operated) type, believed to be the last of its type still in operation. While we were waiting for our crossing, we saw a sea eagle..." flying overhead, which was a great bonus.
In summary: a little bit of history, a scenic crossing (reached by some roads in beautiful countryside), and maybe you'll see a rare bird too!
