Highland Home Industries Depot, Ullapool

This illustrated postcard shows the Highland Home Industries Depot in Ullapool. It is a wooden building half way along Shore Street which used to be an outlet for traditional textile products made in Scotland. It is now used as a private residence.

The village of Ullapool is situated on the northern shore of Loch Broom. It began in 1788 as a planned village, designed for the British Fisheries Society by Thomas Telford. Although the herring fishing industry declined in the 19th century, Ullapool continues to thrive because of its harbour. Today it is the terminus of the car ferry service from Stornoway and a popular tourist centre.
