Ferry to Skye and Glenelg
Although the bridge to the Isle of Skye is not terribly far away (40 minutes drive), we recommend taking this Glenelg-Skye ferry! It is a pretty special ferry whose top rotates so that you can drive on it. With a bit of luck, you will also see otters, seals or dolphins/whales.
The ferry is a bit more expensive than other ferries in the region, but it is worth it for those who do not want to travel to the bridge.
- The ferry sails seven days a week between 10 am and 6 pm (10 am to 7 pm in June, July, and August). Every 20 minutes or as required.
- The road to the Glenelg-Skye ferry is a bit challenging for some. You drive on small mountain roads. Take 30 minutes for this route to the departure point.
- Unfortunately, this ferry does not run during the winter.
