A piece of Highland history that hasn't been gentrified or killed off by the health and safety police. A must if visiting Skye.

Go out of your way to take this! We drove from the Skye side - single lane hairy road that was actually great fun - gets up to about 1,000 feet altitude quickly then down again. Not for the faint of heart. The ferry itself...More

This is a superb access route to Skye. The short ferry crossing is a joy as you view the land from Glenelg Bay

Don't miss the opportunity to try the Glenelg Ferry. This is at the end of a scenic route from Sheil Bridge through Glenelg onto the Sound of Sleet. Before the Skye Bridge was constructed, the Glenelg Ferry was the only means of access to the...More

Now that Skye is linked to the mainland by a bridge, you could easily forget that it is actually an island and you need to cross the water to get there. One way of doing this is taking the ferry from Mallaig, but there's another...More

We decided to leave beautiful Skye via the little ferry from Kylerhea across to Glenelg on the mainland. Very spectacular scenic drives on both sides - lots of WOW moments. The ferry itself is very interesting, with its swivel deck for loading/unloading cars. Drive distance...More

The community owned ferry that crosses from Skye to Glenelg is well worth a visit. The journey to the ferry port on the Skye side and again on the mainland side is breathtaking. Narrow winding roads takes you through the most beautiful countryside down to...More
