This is a small, turntable ferry. It holds 4–6 cars at a time and is quite small. The ferry loads, and then it turns so that you never have to reverse off the ferry—keep in mind that a person actually turns it. It's a wonder to watch and definitely one of a kind. It's a gorgeous, gorgeous, quick trip, with a chance of seeing seals, porpoise, and other wildlife that lives in the area and on that coast. A local also told me that the famed golden eagle tends to follow the ferry, so keep your eyes pealed—if you mention to the people manning it that you want to see it, they'll tell you if it pops up. Definitely the best way to get to Skye!
When you arrive at the Glenelg ferry stop, there's a small gift shop with a honesty box, and that's it. Make sure to bring cash with you! A normal sized car, one way, was 15 pounds. There's no cash machine for miles, so plan this in advance. The people were really kind and let me get on with my car for only 8 pounds, but I was embarrassed by putting them in that position. Don't be me! Bring cash!
The road to Glenelg is twisty and single-track, so keep that in mind.
