The big draw for many visitors is Skye, just a short 30 minute crossing from the mainland and yet a whole other world away once there. But don't let that overshadow the many charms of Raasay and the Small Isles too.

Plan ahead otherwise you might not get the time you want. There are very limited car slots when you go to the isle of Skye to get you tickets online.

Made the crossing with our tour group so we didn't have to deal with tickets or staff. There were seats on top of the ferry with a great view.

Indifferent to customers and really poor customer service. Wrong information given by customer service assistants. Shame they have the monopoly on the services to the Islands as I would love to use a different comoany
