The Knoydart Western Isles Ferry sails several times a day, every day, between the Scottish fishing village of Mallaig to Inverie and Tarbet in Loch Nevis. The jewel in our crown is the Western Isles, an 84 passenger traditional wooden ferry, with a licensed bar and toilets aboard.
The transfer cost from Mallaig to Inverie any time return is £20. One way is £10.
Children 5 to 13 half price and children under 5 travel free. We also accept highland travel cards.
The transfer takes between 25 and 40 minutes depending on the boat you catch.
You can find our full time table via the button to the left or by visiting our website.
We also operate a fast RIB for those wishing a private hire at a time of their choosing, minimum charge £60. More info on our RIB activity services can be found here.

Calanna is Knoydart's local charter boat based in Inverie. Fully licensed and insured for 12 passengers. She is a Lochin 33, (the same hull as used by the RNLI for their Brede class Lifeboat). Comfortable and sea kindly, fast or slow with a large, safe deck.
Calanna is named after Calum and Anna, her skipper Iain Wilson's two children. Iain, who lives on Knoydart and farms at Inverguserain, has been sailing round Knoydart and the Small Isles for over 30 years dropping off hill walkers, whale and shark watching, picnicking, fishing, photographing wildlife, or just enjoying the craic on a wee sail up the loch. We can tailor a trip for your needs.
A Note About Access.
We are very lucky in Scotland to have the Scottish Outdoor Access Code, which details the rights and responsibilities of access-takers and landowners. As a walker, cyclist or horserider you can access most areas of land, and are able to camp in most places that are outwith the grounds (curtilages) of properties (please avoid areas where your presence might disturb livestock, or where forestry operations are taking place). For more information on access in Knoydart, see the information here, or feel free to contact the Ranger Service for more information.
