Skye Bridge Tolls Abolished
The infamous tolls on the Skye Bridge were removed in 2005 after several years of campaigns.  You can now drive over and back FREE of charge.  Cameras have been retained on the Bridge to record all traffic going on to the island.

Glenelg Skye Ferry
There may be a bridge to Skye but a community group have retained a ferry service and keep it going.  So if you want to go to Skye over the sea ferry take a look.

Glenelg Ferry Crew Get New Look
The crew of the historic Isle of Skye ferry, which runs between Glenelg and Kylerhea, are sporting 'new look' kit, courtesy of Talisker Distillery on Skye. Talisker Distillery, which produces the world-famous single malt, has pledged support to the community-run ferry company by purchasing and joint branding the six-strong crew's new uniform and wet weather gear. Talisker, owned by Diageo, is Skye's only distillery and employs 14 people full-time, plus around 12 season staff, welcoming around 40,000 visitors each year. Incorporated in February 2006, the Isle of Skye Ferry Community Interest Company operates daily crossings on board the 'Glenachulish' - the last working example of a manual turntable ferry - for 30 weeks of the year between Easter and the end of October.
Georgette Crawford, Brand Home Manager at Talisker Distillery, said: "Talisker is delighted to be able to sponsor a historic ferry crossing, which has been in existence for centuries. We're especially keen to support the ferry company, given that it's owned and run by the local community".
Jennifer Frances, Managing Director of Isle of Skye Ferry Community Interest Company, added: "The purchase of the crew's new kit by Talisker Distillery has been a great boost to our business and the crew are really enjoying wearing their 'new look'.
"The Glenelg-Kylerhea crossing offers a uniquely adventurous way of bringing visitors to the 'Misty Isle' - and of course no visit to Skye could possibly be complete without sampling a dram of the Talisker!".
