Waiting for the Dornie Ferry

This view shows a car on the slipway at Ardelve, waiting to cross to the village of Dornie. Dornie is situated at the foot of Loch Long and Loch Duich, and was originally laid out as a fishing/trading station in 1794 by the British Fisheries Society. The busy ferry route of Ardelve, Dornie and Totaig linked the parishes of Kintail and Lochalsh, and in the final year of operation the ferry ran from 8am to 8pm daily including Sundays and Bank holidays. In 1940, the ferry ceased operation when the Dornie bridge was opened
