Ruins of the old pier, Kilcreggan

I knew that ferries took people and stock between the small villages on the Roseneath peninsula- there were few roads in the region at that time – and Georgiana drew a sketch of Kilcreggan in her diary. The pier there was a stopping off place for the ‘wherry boat’ and in 2014 we went there late one afternoon to see if the anything of original pier was still visible. It was wonderful to find the great stones still standing and reaching out into the loch, just as they had in 1828 when Georgiana visited her friends in Kilcreggan village.

    Hi Georgiana. Very interesting blog.

    Where can I find more info on the Wherry Boat Pier at Kilcreggan?

    I would like to discover more about this old pier that I have suggested could be used again

    In a future regeneration of the village.

    Many thanks, Robert Mc Kenna

      Hi Robert and thanks for getting in touch. I’m sorry I can’t be of any help. I know little about the old pier except what seems to be known locally as the ‘OLD PIER’ is not the same as the original one that Georgiana Molloy would have used, which was much older. That was a stone pier, and the only information I have is what was referenced in my book. Good luck with your investigations!
