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.

Wanted to see a little of Skye so used the ferry rather than the road bridge about 25 mins going 45 coming back not too bad at all. Just over £20 each way for car and 4 adults so good value

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.
