SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS ONLY (Until further notice)

There is no access to inside toilets but there are outdoor composting toilets.
Dress appropriately for wet weather, wild land and midgies.
The ferry holds a maximum of six passengers (regardless of age). There is no booking – first come, first served but the jetty area is a lovely place to hang out. The journey takes 5 minutes so the boat returns regularly.
