Ferry crossing to Dornie

This view shows a car at the slipway at Dornie, having crossed from Ardelve. Dornie is at the foot of Loch Long and Loch Duich, and was originally laid out as a fishing and trading station in 1794 by the British Fisheries Society. The busy ferry route of Dornie, Ardelve 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.
