Steyr Winch set up at Ardnarff

The photograph is courtesy of the family of George Dey. George took many forestry photographs in his forestry career and many are now shown on this web site. Check under ‘Groups’ and George Dey Collection.

Good view of the Steyr tower, the anchor ropes and the load haulage cables and skyline.

Can anyone confirm if Ardnarff is located in Strome Forest area?

Back in the late 40's, early 50's, Ardnarff was the Eastern extremity of South Strome Forest. The current A890 road part of which is The Strome By-Pass which runs from Strathcarron to Strome is from Ardnarff to Strome utilising virtually the same roadline as set out originally by my father all those years ago. By a strange quirk of fate I had a very active part in supervising and managing the construction of the Strome By-Pass some 20 years after the forestry road was built

This Steyr tower mounted on one of Styer's own six-wheel chassis was owned and operated by Riddochs of Kilmallie, then later by Boyd Brothers of Blaich, Fort William.
