I got the ticket but now looking for pictures of APPLECROSS (which I believe to be the vessel used) please.

TIA.

Think you might be struggling to find a photo. Never was on the ferry there but I am sure its a long time since it was a McBraynes one.
Been a private ferry for many years, now using one of the ferries from Ballachulish. Hope someone can come up with one as I would like to see her myself.
Thought it was the boat used to Applecross you were after, small launch used to come out and meet the Loch Nevis and take passengers and supplies to Applecross.

Thanks Uisdean, was really Dougster who wanted the photo, I am just interested in any vessel around the Western Isles.
Dont suppose you have any information on the launches that used to come out to the Loch Nevis to collect passengers and mail.
Thanks
Don
