Ard Neackie and pier
Ard Neackie and pier
Ard Neakie was used as the eastern terminus of the Heilam Ferry, which crossed the loch to the Heilam Inn on the west bank of the loch at Portnancon. The ferry ceased operation in the 1890s when the road around the loch was completed, but the ferry house built in 1831 still stands, though sadly increasingly derelict. Ard Neakie is also notable for the four large lime kilns built in 1870. The Reay estate produced large amounts of lime here and on the nearby island of Eilean Choraidh and loaded it into ships.

Almost an island, Ard Neackie is linked to the mainland by a tombolo.
