OS Landranger sheet 62 (North Kintyre area)
A ferry used to cross West Loch Tarbert from the jetty at Portachoillan to where the OS marks Ferry House on the far shore.
The ferry is marked on the Admiralty Charts of Scotland for West Loch Tarbert, surveyed in 1849 and published 1856. The ferry road is also clearly marked, along with a jetty where Ferry House stands today and a Boat House at Leac Dhubh Earrainn.
