This is the way to cross to Skye. The road to Glenelg and from Kylerhea are both stunning with great views of the mountains. While waiting for the ferry we saw a white tailed eagle fly past. Highlight of our week. The ferry itself is...More

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

The road to Glenelg is not the easiest: single lane but with more than enough passing places. Stop and admire the view and follow the Skye Ferry signs. This is not the fastest but by far the nicest way to get to Skye. Got to...More

Ferry to Skye and bridge home, both wonderful things to experience, especially the ferry. A wonderful older ferry with a turntable was well worth the £15 fare. We were lucky enough to go on a day that a expat South African baker had a stall...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
