Many thanks to Gael Cameron for sending this picture, which shows one of our local fishermen on his way to work yesterday morning. This amphibious vehicle, a prototype of a local design, enables fishermen to save time on the early-morning commute from bed to creel. However, oncoming motorists should be warned that it has no reverse gear.
A larger passenger version is in the planning stages. It will, in one stroke, replace both the Shiel bus and the Corran ferry, offering a direct, non-stop daily service to Fort William.
