It’s really worth the trip to experience this man (and dog!)-operated ferry boat over to Skye. Great views, seals of you’re lucky! The drive is also guaranteed to give you a true taste of the single-track Frog and Toad ride that Highlands Scotland is known...More

Drove to Kylerhea to take this vintage ferry off the Isle of Skye. The drive down (single-track with few passing places) was not for the faint of heart, but the quick trip across on the car ferry was super cool, and even a bit...romantic (except...More

We crossed on this ferry as part of an Outlander tour. First of all, if you're not comfortable on narrow, winding roads you won't like the drive to get here. However, you'd miss a lot of scenery! The ferry is the last of its kind,...More

This ferry crosses a most beautiful stretch of water with a beautiful drive on either side. It is really interesting to watch how the turntable is used to move the ramp into a good position. It's really ingenious and we wondered why it isn't in...More

On our last day we decided to take a drive to Glenelg and take the ferry over to Skye. It only runs between April and October and costs £15 one way but it's an essential for any visitor. You drive south from Kyle Of Lochalsh...More

This was something else again ! Want a different experience from ferries for the masses ? This is it ! Couldn't resist not buying a hat & mug souvenir from the lighthouse shop. Thank you so much for the memories :)

Had no idea what to expect, but this was great! Enjoyed it immensely, though the drive on the other side was incredibly bumpy!

The Skye Ferry is a must do if you are visiting the Highlands. It is a turntable ferry, holding only four vehicles, the crossing runs from the stunning village of Glenelg over the Sound of Sleat to the Isle of Skye. Taking only a few...More

Great little trip from Glenelg to Skye... roads are a bit hairy, but stop in Glenelg - a truly beautiful place on the waterside. Enjoyed our crossing but wish it had been longer and really hoped to see Victor the sea-eagle, but no luck :-(

There was a camper van ahead of us the day we crossed. There’s a website and contact details - mobile and email so you could always ring them and ask. It’s definitely worth it. Ps it’s cash only. No card facility.

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
