Afoot on Kerrera 8

Built around 1750, this is the old jetty at Bàrr nam Boc (height of the roe-buck). After being ferried over from Mull cattle were driven from here to the north end of Kerrera, where they swam to the mainland at Ardentrive (aird na t-snàimh, the headland of swimming). Even after large ferries started transporting cattle in the nineteenth century, bypassing Kerrera, the mail continued to pass through here until 1864.
