On the postman's boat between Barrisdale and Corran
In 1965 we were advised by the Knoydart Estate that the postman did a round trip by boat to Barrisdale from Corran once a week. A mountaineering colleague and I planned our week's trip to Knoydart with this schedule in mind. We joined the postman in Barrisdale and we were the only passengers. I don't know for how many years walking enthusiasts were able to make this crossing. The service seems to have disappeared. The day's walk back to Barrisdale after climbing Beinn Scritheall was a highlight of the holiday. Sadly the path north of Kinloch Hourn is now bordered by electricity pylons.
