Corran Ferry, Lochaber

This postcard shows the Corran Ferry, crossing the Corran Narrows in Lochaber. Crossing Loch Linnhe, nine miles south of Fort William, the ferry is on an ancient drove route to Central Scotland. To the west, it provides direct access to Ardnamurchan, Morvern and Moidart, while to the east it links up with the A82. The eastern slipway is at Nether Lochaber, while the western is at Ardgour. The ferry is one of the few crossings still in operation today
