Use of the Corran Ferry will now only be for those who live on the peninsulas and nearby islands, and who have an essential need to travel to or from the mainland, said Highland Council this week.
A local authority spokeperson told the Lochaber Times this week: ‘The First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, announced on March 22 that ferry travel across Scotland must be for essential travel only.
‘From now on the Corran Ferry will be for those who live on the peninsulas, and nearby islands, who have an essential need to travel to or from the mainland, and for essential supplies or business. Nothing else.
‘At present the return of non-residents back to the mainland will also be deemed essential travel.’
