We arrived in Ullapool on the ferry from Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides in 2014, after a wonderful trip through the Islands. Our second part of the holiday was to tour the Scottish Highlands, up to John o’Groats and then back home to Norfolk.
Ullapool is a surprise, a lovely one, it is how one thinks of a Highland small fishing town. Lots of white buildings and the harbour is full of fishing vessels of one kind or another. There are lots of lovely little one off shops and the Caledonian Hotel, built in the 1900’s, is one of the oldest hotels in the area.
A little history…..On the east shore of Loch Broom, Ullapool was founded in 1788 as a herring port by the British Fisheries Society. It was designed by Thomas Telford.
