We've been meaning to try this lovely little ferry for ages and it was definitely worth the wait!
We managed to visit on a sunny Saturday and although it was towards the end of tourist season it was still nicely busy; we were full for our crossing, with 3 more cars arriving just as we pulled away.
I will say you need to take care on the drive down. Even as locals, parts of the winding, steep, single-track road were a tiny bit hair-raising! The edge of the road also drops sharply in sections so you need to be careful not to move too far over when passing other vehicles.
It's well worth taking the extra time to visit the little Cafe at the top of the hill, just before you head down to the slipway. There didn't seem to be seating inside but there is covered seating outside, and the views are simply stunning. You also get visited by the friendly birds, seeking crumbs! We had tea/coffee and some of the home baking and it's a fantastic spot to sit and take it all in, watching the ferry below.
The crossing itself is pretty short but most of the fun is with the manual turntable element. Plus the views. The road on the other side is much like the one you'll have just navigated, so again needs some care especially on the blind-hills and bends. But there's yet more stunning scenery to make it all worthwhile!
We did the single crossing, which cost us £18 for a car and 3 passengers. We then drove back around via the Bridge, which is only about 10-15 minutes from the slipway on the Skye side. As a round-trip it makes for a great day out.
It's really worth doing if you're in the area, and we'd definitely recommend.
