Visit The Shore Station
Set on the hillside above the mainland slipway our brand new Shore Station features a Café and Shop. Throughout the year the purpose built Christopher Main Memorial Shore Station is used for community events, as our office, a hub for ferry business and fun. You’re welcome to visit us. We stock merchandise including the iconic “SKYE FERRY” jumper.
Shop & Café
A delicious combination; the most wonderful view across the narrows to Skye and hand-roasted coffee carefully prepared by our lovely cafe staff. A simple offering of quality teas and coffees along with handmade cakes, pastries and sandwiches. The menu is ever-changing at the Shore Station cafe – the quality is consistent.

The café is open every day throughout the season from 10am to 5pm. In Winter / off-season you’ll find the Shore Station cafe is open on Sundays 11am-4pm.
Transport Trust Red Wheel
The National Transport Trust awards Red Wheels to sites of important transport heritage. There are fewer than 30 in Scotland; Glasgow Queen Street Station, Glenfinnan Viaduct in Lochaber and Orkney’s Churchill Barriers are among other locations with such plaques.
You can view our Red Wheel at The Shore Station.
The Isle of Skye ferry’s Red Wheel was unveiled in Glenelg at the end of the Summer Season in 2023. We were delighted and honoured in equal measure to accept the Red Wheel plaque from the National Transport Trust.
