Shore Street and Lochbroom Tweed Mill

View of the Lochbroom Tweed Mills building on Shore Street, Ullapool. Note the gravel roads and no pavement.

The tall building on the corner is one of Ullapool's earliest buildings, being erected soon after the foundation of the village in 1788 by the British Fisheries Society. One of its early uses was as a salt store. At the time of writing [2009] it is in use as housing shops.

Just visible on the wall that is not lime washed is the stone shelter or box that held the barometer to help the fishermen forecast the weather. The Admiralty gave fishing communities barometers in the 1800s. It is not known if the Ullapool one was from the Admiralty or another source.
