Old-style Crossing

The ferry crossing of Loch Linnhe at the Corran Narrows, nine miles south of Fort William, is a vital link for the communities of Ardgour, Sunart, Kingairloch, Morvern and Ardnamurchan. The alternative routes involve serious distances. There is concern at present about the continuing operation of the service by the Highland Council. For an historic perspective look at the page from Undiscovered Scotland where there is a reminder that this type of ferry was at one time the norm in parts of the Highlands & Islands before bridges and causeways replaced them.

From Spain - Thanks John. We remember them all fondly. They added to our early enjoyment of the Highlands and Islands. We still prefer to go to Skye by the remaining ferry and enjoy the mainland and island routes to it.
