About Achnacroish (Lismore)Lismore is a long narrow island, ten miles long (including Musdile at the S. End) and no more than 1½ miles broad. It lies in the Firth of Lorn. Archnacroish is the main village, lying halfway along the island's east coast. As well as having the island's only shop and school, the village is the terminal for the main Caledonian Macbrayne ferry service from Oban.
In addition to the ferry slip, Achnacroish also has a deep-water pier, built in 1880, which is no longer in regular use. It used to be the destination for steamers.
The photo above shown the ferry slip, whilst the adjacent older steamer pier can be seen under 'More Photos'.
