This evening, my theme is Ullapool, a town located in the remote North West of Scotland on the shores of Loch Broom. This loch (lake) is actually a sea loch with Ullapool conveniently situated as a port with a regular ferry link to Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis in Outer Hebrides.

Ullapool’s quaint white painted houses date from the town’s inception in 1788 as a community planned by the British Fisheries Society. However, tourism has now largely replaced fishing as a revenue source. Apart from the regular ferry crossings there also short sea cruises available. Other local scenic attractions  include the Corrieshalloch Gorge  at head of Loch Broom and view from the suspension bridge below the Falls of Measach.

Here is a link to a tour I provided earlier this year which incorporated Ullapool.

Elsewhere today, I have been pleased to receive a number of new tour enquiries to which I have responded, viz:

  • Hiking tour along Hadrian’s Wall
  • Driving Tour of Scotland
  • Charles Rennie Mackintosh Architecture Tour of Glasgow.

Weather here in Glasgow has been dull and overcast but dry with temperature relatively mild.
