Loch Broom from Ullapool

Loch Broom has been part of the Cromarty estates since the 17th century and is on the drove road to the Dirrie More. There was an unsuccessful attempt to establish a fisheries station here in 1698. Its shores are a mixture of woodland and rocky promontories and are noted for their many sheltered anchorages. The middle of its northern shore is dominated by Ben More Coigach.

Ullapool, on the north shore of Loch Broom, began as a planned village built by the British Fisheries Society in 1788.

Broom comes from the gaelic 'bhraoin', meaning place of rain showers
