Leaving the ferry at  Ardelve

A car on the slipway at Ardelve, having crossed from the village of Dornie. 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 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.
