Travel to Skye on the "Glenachulish", the last manually operated turntable ferry in Scotland

Our ferry boat, the Glenachulish, is the last manually operated turntable ferry in Scotland. She is ideally suited for this crossing and is part of our heritage. There has been a car ferry service crossing the Kylerhea straits since 1934. However, the closest point to the Isle of Skye has been a crossing point for hundreds of years.

People come from all over the world to visit our ferry. Sometimes, they even get married on it! More often, passengers spot seals and herons, perhaps even an otter or our local sea-eagle.

Travelling on the the Glenachulish is a great experience, but she is over 40 years old and maintenance is expensive. This winter we have spent over £30k on repairs and refurbishment. Please help to conserve her.
