Strome Ferry, Loch Carron, Inverness-shire, 13 June 1966

The broken nature of the West Coast of Scotland makes it necessary for roads to make many detours. Several car ferries, of which Strome Ferry is typical, help to solve this problem. In this picture cars are landing on the north shore of Loch Carron. The ferry is much used in the season by tourists travelling to and from Skye via Achnasheen and Loch Carron.

Tuesday 13th June.

Dear Mum & Dad.

We are staying at Fort William tonight exactly opposite Ben Nevis which Ivor wants to climb tomorrow. We didn’t go over to the Isle of Skye as it has been misty dull and rainy all day. The car is going very well and is just the right size for scotish [sic] country roads. We have done 3000 miles in three months. At this rate it will soon be an old ruin!

Love from Diane xxx
