Ballachulish Scotland HighlandsBallachulish, once a ferry point, is now a pretty little village very much involved in the tourism of the region. North and South Ballachulish grew around the slipways from which the ferry crossed Loch Leven from as early as 1730. A vehicle ferry started to cross the narrows in 1912, but the service finally disappeared in 1975 when the bridge opened.
