Corran Ferry service suspended for ‘foreseeable future’
The Corran Ferry service in Lochaber has been suspended for the “foreseeable future” after the boat hit rocks near a slipway on Saturday.
The vessel was not thought to have been badly damaged but it requires a full safety check.
The service’s back-up ferry, The Maid of Coul, is currently unavailable.
Highland Council, which operates the service, said it was working with third parties to “find a solution” to the matter.
The Corran Ferry allows access to and from the communities of Ardgour, Morvern and Ardnamurchan via a narrow stretch of Loch Linnhe.
It is also used by people and businesses on Mull, who first travel to the mainland on the Fishnish-Lochaline ferry.
The Corran Ferry and Fishnish-Lochaline services also offer tourists an alternative to the Oban to Mull ferry.
The ferry is usually available for the emergency services at all times.
