Group beside crates of fish, Ullapool

This photo shows some people sitting by crates of fish at Shore Street, Ullapool. Ullapool began in 1788 as a planned village, designed by Thomas Telford for the British Fisheries Society to exploit the boom in the herring fishing industry.

Today the local fishing fleet catch Norway Lobsters (prawns), lobsters, scallops and crabs and the pier remains the focal point of the village.

Lobster creels are attached to ground ropes and buoys, and are baited with fish. Most of the boats fish all the year round and return to port on a daily basis. Refrigerated lorries transport the bulk of the catches to local processors and from there on to European markets
