In 2006, Murdo Mackenzie, the owner of the ferry, was planning to retire. A community interest company was formed by local residents to buy the ferry and run the service.
In January 2012, following a landslide blocking the A890 road, Glenachulish began a service at Stromeferry. The service crossed Loch Carron to North Strome, avoiding a 140 miles (230 km) diversion by road.
Since 1982, Glenachulish has operated the Glenelg ferry across Kylerhea narrows between Easter and October each year. The 550 m crossing takes only 5 minutes and is the shortest sea crossing to Skye. There has been a ferry on this route for over 400 years, with a car ferry since 1934. It is one of only two remaining ferries to Skye from the mainland - the other is the Caledonian MacBrayne service between Mallaig and Armadale.
