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

On my first visit to Skye this year the weather precluded the ferry running so I had to use the bridge which was just like crossing a bridge. On my second visit the ferry was running and in fact was just coming over when I...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

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
