Isle of Skye

As the closest point on the mainland to Skye, Glenelg is the site of the oldest crossing to the island. The Glenelg – Skye ferry is a tourist attraction in its own right, being the last manually operated turntable ferry in Scotland, and it provides ease of access from the village to Skye for residents and holiday makers.

Skye is famed for its striking landscapes, and the list of things to do is endless. Our favourites include a dip into the Fairy Pools for the strong swimmers, and eating at The Three Chimneys.

The island’s capital, Portree, is famed for its picturesque harbour and fresh fish and chips.
