Kessock Ferry, SS 'Nellie'

The Kessock Ferry SS 'Nellie'

In 1825 Sir William Fettes bought the estate of Redcastle, on the Black Isle, for £135,000. This purchase included the rights to operate the ferry at Kessock, linking Inverness with the Black Isle. Within three years he had introduced steam-powered boats on the route and built new piers.

In 1939 Inverness Town Council and Ross and Cromarty County Council took control of the service and it remained in their hands until the bridge was opened in 1982
