Scottish turntable ferry last surviving in the world – BBC News

A manually operated turntable ferry in Scotland is the last surviving in the world.

The MV Glenachulish’s unique design allows it to navigate the challenging tidal conditions of the Kylerhea Narrows between the Scottish mainland and the Isle of Skye.

Up to six cars can be transported on its deck, which the crew rotate by hand when it reaches its slipway.

The vessel – which is more than 50 years old – was saved in 2007 when it was bought by the local community after its long-time skipper retired.
