Visitors to the island are welcome. If using your own boat and landing on the pontoon then we have a suggested landing charge of £10 per boat. This money goes directly towards maintenance of the pontoon and allows us to keep it open for easier access to the island, so all donations are greatly appreciated. You can use text to donate via JustGiving, just text the code ISLE16 £10 to 70070, or via Paypal using the button on the Donate page of the website.
Volunteers run an occasional, weather dependent, ferry every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to visit out with these dates or for more information. Days marked in yellow as “Booked” just means we have a scheduled group booking and the ferry will also run for casual visitors. The ferry is for foot passengers only. The boat will run from the Isle Martin jetty at Ardmair every Friday, Saturday and Sunday till mid September, the first boat will be at 11.00am, then 11.30am. The first boat back will be at 2.30pm and the second at 3pm. Baby, child and adult lifejackets are provided. Parking is tight so please park sensibly to allow as many cars as possible to fit without blocking anyone in. We are running this service to raise funds for pontoon repairs so please consider giving generously so that we can keep this community owned island as accessible as possible to all.
There are four buildings on the island providing very basic bothy style accommodation, The Croft House suitable for small bookings, The Mill House for larger. There is also the Macleod House and the Boa house which are both two bedroom family houses. The cost of house rental includes 1 return journey in the ferry. The boat can carry 7 passengers.
