|Route outline (key)|
The C1224 is a very important route for many tourists each summer, as it enables them to cross 'over the sea to Skye' via the Glenelg - Kylerhea Ferry. It starts at the bottom of the Mam Ratagan Pass, at the north end of the village of Glenelg, and heads west. At first it follows the Glenmore River to the coast, and then it follows the scenic shore past a sandy beach and around a rocky promontory before climbing a little as it turns north. There is a large car park above the ferry, and then the road drops steeply round a hairpin bend to the slipway.
