Ullapool Tailors

Ullapool was well known as a centre for tailoring, and at one time had a tweed mill and warehouse. The tweed mill was established to try and diversify the village's economy which had been centred almost exclusively on fishing which had proved to be an unreliable source of employment. Unfortunately the tweed business did not thrive either and herring fishing proved the more robust enterprise.
