The easiest way on to Skye from the mainland is over the Skye Bridge in Kyle of Lochalsh. But if you are planning on travelling “over the sea to Skye”, as the old song goes, please check that your ferry crossing is running and that you have tickets.
You should buy your ferry tickets in advance at www.calmac.co.uk. The ferry crossing is in Mallaig, which is not near to the bridge. So although it’s a wonderful way to arrive on Skye, some pre-planning is required, as the ferries run at set times of day.
Caution: be sure to check what route your satnav is suggesting!
