Glenachulish welcomes back an old skipper

John Bander visited the Ferry yesterday.He used to skipper the Glenachulish in the very early 1970's when she was still serving the Ballachulish crossing before the bridge was built. Its the first time he's been on board since. He says she hasn't changed much except the wheelhouse used to be green, and there were red stylings on a black hull. Maybe next season.

A tricky manoeuvre


At very low tide we sometimes need to load cars from the end of the slip rather than the side (what we call a T-bone loading). This requires us to sail rather alarmingly close to the shore as can be seen in this picture. Don't worry, Roddy and Donnie have everything in hand. (Photo by Margaret Jack)
