A fascinating look at how things used to be done.
Driving between Glasgow and Fort William either meant a long drive around Loch Leven, via Kinlochleven, or getting the Ballachulish Ferry.
This video shows the ferry crossing in 1926.
The ferries from 1926 & 1973 used the same concept of a turntable to make it easier to get vehicles on/off the ferry. Modern day turntable type ferries still exist. Just a few miles north of Ballachulish is the Corran Ferry.
@fitheach Are you sure it's a turntable ferry? As I remember it, it has those odd-angled on and off ramps but, other than that, it's a normal RORO type.
Have been across on it once, a few years ago. Drove the long way round the coast then got the ferry back.
I find just about any topic can be interesting once you start researching it.
I once followed a group of people who posted photographs of fence posts. They were mostly photos showing things growing on the top of straining posts. They were beautiful and fascinating.
