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 many seals that bob up and down in this area. We just missed the pod of Minke whales that passed through. The skipper's dog helping to untie the ferry ropes is most amusing. Highly recommended.

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.

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 historic and unique. It has a mechanically operated turntable to spin the vehicles round so they can can drive on and off in forward direction. It can only take 4/5 cars and max 12 passengers so you can wait a while if there are a lot of people but the view is oiutstanding while you are waiting.
