Hey, Hey, Clear the Way
This photo of the derelict North Strome Ferry Terminal, taken by Neil King, shows the Strome Narrows of Loch Carron crossed by ferry until 1970. Then a new section of the A890 was built in order to give faster access to the Kyle of Lochalsh, Skye and beyond. Now plans are being considered to construct a bridge or create a new by-pass. Another scheme, many miles away, involves the by-passing of Thurso to speed access to Scrabster and the Northern Isles. The details are on the BBC website. Getting out to the islands may become that little easier.
