Journey To Skye

Our ferry makes the crossing from Glenelg on the mainland to the remote village of Kylerhea on Skye every day from April to October, weather permitting. The journey is short (800m), although detours to allow viewing of wildlife are not uncommon. You may have to wait for a short time before sailing – sit back and enjoy the spectacle.
