Not all the old ferry crossings in Scotland have been replaced by bridges. The Corran Ferry, operated by the Highland Council, is one of few remaining.The eastern slipway (the Fort William side) is known as Nether Lochaber. The western side of the crossing is guarded by the extremely attractive Corran Lighthouse. It is also the location of the Inn at Ardgour, conveniently placed immediately above the ferry slipway. The route of the ferry lies on one of the ancient drove routes to Central Scotland and its cattle markets from the Hebrides.To the west the ferry permits direct access to Morvern, Moidart and Ardnamurchan, via the pretty village of Strontian and it also provides a link to the short ferry crossing to the Isle of Mull from Lochaline.
