Strome Ferry

Until 1897 Stromeferry was the end of the railway line from Dingwall to the west coast. It was busy with the ferry crossing from Strome, and a regular schedule of stops by steamers travelling the west coast and the islands, collecting and delivering people and freight to the railway. With the completion of the final ten miles, Kyle of Lochalsh became the more important port. The pier gradually fell into disrepair, was condemned as unsafe in 1937 and demolished by the owners of the LMS Railway
