Glenelg ferry that crosses the narrow Kylerhea straits to Skye as a community run service will not be operating during the remainder of the 2020 season. The ferry boat, the Glenachulish, is the last manually operated turntable ferry in Scotland. She is ideally suited for this crossing with its fast flowing tidal waters and is part of the local heritage.

It's featured in our Memorable MG Route from Dalwhinney to Kyle of Lochalsh on the way to Skye as something not to miss. See MMGR7 & Photo guide

Corran ferry that crosses the narrows on Loch Linnhe to Ardgour just west of Fort William has had operating difficulties so if you plan to cross there be prepared for possible delays.

If you are planning a tour in the NW Highlands then the route through Glen Coe, across the bridge at Balachulish and on towards Ford William passes the ferry just north of Onich. A gentle tour on Ardgour is wonderful but be prepared for single track roads with passing places. The route will be slow but goes right out west to the remote Ardnamurchan lighthouse.
