Ballachulish from the Quarry
Ballachulish before the railway was laid in 1875 (11 and a half miles of railroad laid for waggons in the largest quarry.) In the Statistical Account of 1845 they mention a tram road along which the quarried rock was carried in waggons (which were pulled by horses), so this photo must be between 1845 and 1875, probably closer to the latter. From a booklet by Barbara Fairweather MBE, published by Glencoe and North Lorn Folk Museum, Glencoe. (Thank you to Margaret Stewart.)
