Really helpful crew prepared to hold the boat for us when the Islay ferry was severely delayed from Kennacraig due to a road traffic accident.

This is a cash only trip so be warned, however, once you are on the island this is also the only way off, so the guys running the ferry told us not to worry that we had no cash, they'd get it on the way...More

The car ferry goes from Port Askaig on Islay to Feolin on Jura and takes only 5 minutes. There is a very strong current running between the islands so apparently the ferries can be cancelled because the water is uncrossable. Even on a good day...More

Fast and efficient, and that's what you want. Its a small ferry holding only a few cars, so get there well in time for your crossing; however the crossings are frequent.

Cal Mac runs this ferry about once an hour. The ride lasts about 5 minutes and runs right on time. If you have a car, it can only hold 4 so get in the queue 10-15 minutes ahead to get a spot

Unlike some of the other small ferries this one is friendly and reliable. During the summer I can see if being a good idea to arrive early to ensure you get in as.can only transport a couple of vehicles at a time
