The Corran Ferry at the Nether Lochaber Slipway
The Corran Ferry at the Nether Lochaber Slipway
Operated by Highland Council, the Corran Ferry is one of few remaining mainland vehicle ferries in Scotland. It crosses Loch Linnhe between Nether Lochaber and Ardgour at the Corran Narrows, eight miles south of Fort William.
Loch Linnhe, Scotland
Loch Linnhe is a sea loch on the west coast of Scotland. The name Linnhe is derived from the Gaelic word linne, meaning "pool". The part upstream of Corran is known in Gaelic as An Linne Dhubh (the black pool, originally known as Loch Abar), and downstream as An Linne Sheileach (the salty pool).

Loch Linnhe follows the line of the Great Glen Fault, and is the only sea loch along the fault. Approximately 31 miles in length, it opens onto the Firth of Lorne at its south western end. The town of Fort William lies at the northeast end of the loch, at the mouth of the River Lochy.
