Strome Ferry, looking West

Stromeferry is at the narrowest part of Loch Carron, with Strome Castle on the opposite shore. The original small settlement expanded rapidly when the railway from Inverness and Dingwall was built in 1870 and terminated at Stromeferry. It became a hive of activity, with passenger steamers to Portree on Skye, and to Stornoway on Lewis using the pier, along with boats transporting mail, fish and cattle.
