World’s last timetabled ferry restored on Skye

By Jonathan Rimmer

The world’s last manually operated timetabled ferry has been restored to its former glory.

Almost 50 years old, the MV Glenachulish vessel is the oldest crossing to the Isle of Skye from the mainland.

The restoration cost the boat’s owners £80,000, with the Glenachulish Preservation Trust providing £30,000.

But Jo Crawford, the ferry’s development officer, says the target wouldn’t have been reached without the public’s help.
