Pictures from Doug and Pat Ross on their trip to Scotland 2007
Ullapool in Wester Ross

Welcome to the picturesque small fishing village of Ullapool on Loch Broom. It is here that you first notice the bilingual nature of Highlanders. Ullapool is (Ullapul or Ulapul in Gaelic), and street names are posted in both English and Gaelic. 

    We noted that Whin (related to gorse or furze) cannot be ignored in May by the roadside because the plants become covered with a profusion of spectacular, rich golden-yellow flowers. Wool can be dyed a beautiful yellow at this season, if you risk being scratched by the spiked stems. The leaves of Whin are said to have antiseptic qualities as a wound dressing, but you will probably be in need of it after harvesting them, eh?
