Stromeferry  Ross and Cromarty

 

In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Stromeferry like this:

Strome Ferry, a place in Lochalsh parish, SW Rossshire, on the southern shore of salt-water Loch Carron (3 furlongs broad here), and at the terminus of the Dingwall and Skye railway (1870), 53 miles WSW of Dingwall. It has a post office, with money order, savings' bank, and telegraph departments, a steamboat pier, and a good hotel; whilst on the opposite side of the loch are a small inn and the picturesque ruins of Strome Castle, which existed prior to 1472, and was blown up by Kenneth Mackenzie of Kintail in 1602. ...


On Sunday, 3 June 1883, Strome Ferry was the scene of a Sabbatarian riot.—Ord. Sur., sh. 81, 1882.
