I start today at Fiunary where there is a Camping & Caravanning Club certified site. It is a small privately owned site with great views of the Isle of Mull. There is also a former manse where a Victorian book about a Highland Parish was written. There is even a song been written called “Farewell to Fiunary” sang by the McCalmans.
Along the road I pass the little hill fort of Dun Fhionnairidh on my way to Clach na Criche or the Wishing Well. It’s a rock wall with a hole through it where legend has it that if you could pass through the rock without touching the sides your wishes were granted.
Kingairloch is quite a remote place where all the roads are single track. South of Kingairloch is Glensanda with the biggest granite quarry in the British Isles.
The granite is transported by ships as there are no public roads to the quarry. Apparently it provided granite linings for the British side of the Channel tunnel.
The Corran ferry saves a significant amount of time and mileage from travelling around the Loch through Fort William. The ferry gives direct access to the areas of Morven, Moidart and Ardnamurchan.
The eastern side of the loch where the ferry goes from is Nether Lochaber and the western side is Ardour. The crossing is at the narrowest part of Loch Linnhe with the Corran Lighthouse guarding the opening.
