Left early in morning to catch the 1st ferry. Very reasonable priced. Everything went smoothly and no fuss. Will definitely plot next trip to include hopscotching to islands on Calmac ferries.

The views are breathtaking and you won't be disappointed!! You can get out of your car once you are on the Ferry and parked and go to the upper decks. Bathrooms on board.

We enjoyed the ferry ride back to the Mainland. It was refreshing to stand on the top deck, albeit a bit brisk.
