NG8635 : Ferry at North Strome

taken 6 years ago, near to Stromemore, Highland, Great Britain

Ferry at North Strome
Ferry at North Strome
With the loch side road to Strathcarron closed by a rock fall Highland Council hired the MV "Glenachulish" in January 2012 to temporarily re-establish the vehicle ferry crossing between Stromeferry and North Strome. This six-vehicle community owned turntable ferry normally runs between Glenelg and Kylerhea on Skye during the summer months.

The 10 minute crossing of Loch Carron to Stromeferry - visible in the background - avoided a 140-mile diversion by road.
