Magical well worth the long drive and the beaches are superb. We stayed at Aiden House which overlooks the beaches. We were not disappointed.

They do have a larger boat that can hold 12 plus the ferryman. However in 7 or 8 years of going there, this year was the first time I saw it used but yes, it's a boat and not a large "Calmac" type ferry ;)
