Ferry Tales of Argyll and the Isles by Walter Weyndling
Book Description"Ferry Tales of Argyll and the Isles" is a fascinating record of the ferries that ply the waters off the west coast of Scotland, and which have been part of the fabric of life in this part of Scotland for generations. For visitors these ferries are the ideal and, in some cases, the only way to get about. In this new and expanded edition, Walter Weyndling, who worked with the ferries of western Scotland for many years after the Second World War, recounts with warmth and humour the real story of the ferries, their routes, the people who ran them, the people who used them and the communities they served. He includes a wealth of stories gleaned from archives and personal experience. The result is a marvellous portrayal of a subject of enduring interest for local inhabitants and visitors alike.
