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.
I have a few photos of Loch Leven where you can just see the bridge, which is the only way you want to see it.
