There are two ferry terminals, that serving the Caledonian MacBrayne ferries to Skye and the smaller islands is reached via Harbour Road, whilst the Knoydart Inverie ferry is reached via an access road off Station Road.

The Caledonian MacBrayne Terminal

To Reach

Leave the station via the main entrance, cross Station Road then turn left. Go down a slight slope then follow the pavement round to the right (north). Go down a slope and locate tactile paving indicating a zebra crossing of Harbour Road. Cross Harbour Road, turn right and continue (east of north) to the access road leading left. The harbour is in front of you with the pier itself leading slightly left (north), so bear left as you cross the access road.

You pass a row of five bollards to your left, then a single bollard to your right before you reach the terminal building on your left. Continue straight up the ramp then turn left and go through double pull doors. Veer slightly left then go through another set of doors and turn right into the ticket office. The counter, with induction loop is in front of you.

To arrange assistance, call 01687 462403 and select option 2. Note that staff will escort you between the terminal and the ferry itself.

The Ferry, to Knoydart Inverie

To Reach

Leave the station via the main entrance, cross Station Road and turn right. You veer left then right, round a lay-by outside the shops then continue (east) down a slight slope. Take the turning left and continue onto the Old Pier. At the time of our survey, the pavement was blocked by parked cars, so you may have to walk in the road. A low wall, about 20 cm runs along the east side of this pier. A wooden shed on the left (west) is the ticket office, you go up two steps, going west, to the door.

To arrange assistance, phone Bruce Watts Ferries 01687 462320.
