This is a small, turntable ferry. It holds 4–6 cars at a time and is quite small. The ferry loads, and then it turns so that you never have to reverse off the ferry—keep in mind that a person actually turns it. It's a wonder...More

Wanted to see a little of Skye so used the ferry rather than the road bridge about 25 mins going 45 coming back not too bad at all. Just over £20 each way for car and 4 adults so good value

What a great way to travel between Glenelg and Skye. It makes a wonderful day out to travel via the ferry either way to the stunningly beautiful areas either side of the crossing. The turntable is fun and the crossing very enjoyable, especially spotting the...More

We planned our route specially so we could use the ferry from Kyle Rhea to Glenelg. It was well worth it. Staff very friendly and an excellent opportunity to travel on a unique vessel over an interesting stretch of water.

We drove through Skye to reach the ferry. A lovely experience, we even saw seals bobbing along. Staff very friendly, the ferry is quirky and well worth a visit. Highly recommend.

Maybe and old turn table ferry, but its top class and very efficient. Takes the effort out of some of the crazy driving on the narrow skye roads. You also get to see the seals who follow the ferry as it takes the short trip...More

We paid 15 pounds for each Crossing. I believe a return ticket is 25 pounds. I know I made a typo when I wrote my review, I think I said 150 pounds! And I couldn't figure out how to correct that error. But for the vehicle... More
