The Waverley depating the pier at Arrochar,the Post card has no date on it, but I presume its the early 50s
Loch Long from Arrochar,the old paddle steamers would bring the city dwellers to view the highland splendour and climb Ben Arthur although its better known as The Cobbler. [ 2891ft]
The paddle steamers finally stopped visiting in the early 1950s.
The pier has since fell into a state of disrepair,although at present there is study being made by Strathclyde Transport Executive to see if it would be viable to build a new pier to help with tourism in the area.So perhaps we may see the Waverley call at Arrochar again.
The famous poets Coleridge and Wordsworth visited the area in 1803 ,not sure if they wrote anything about the hills though.
