We were on the Corran Ferry in 2013, that crosses Loch Linnhe, some nine miles south of Fort William, at the Corran Narrows. We then had to drive to another ferry, that then took us across to the Isle of Mull. The views on the first crossing were stunning with the mountains in the background, but it was the white lighthouse that caught my attention, it made a nice subject with the views behind.
A little history for you……..The Corran Lighthouse is situated on the shoreline of Loch Linnhe, on the west side of the Narrows in Corran, a tidal sea loch on the West Coast of Scotland. Built in 1857 by Robert Louis Stevenson’s father and uncle, it was one of a chain of lighthouses marking the route to the Caledonian Canal.
Apparently the lighthouse is still in use, but without a foghorn. The Keepers House is a holiday let, so its you fancy a holiday with a lighthouse in the garden, this is it……. plus the Robert Louis Stevenson’s connection.
