Lochbroom Tweed Mills Warehouse, Ullapool

This photo shows Lochbroom Tweed Mills Warehouse at Shore Street, Ullapool. Boats sit at anchor by the shore.

Ullapool was well known as a centre for tailoring, and had a tweed mill and warehouse at one time. The tweed mill was established as a diversification away from the fishing which had proved to be an uncertain source of employment and industry. Unfortunately the tweed business did not thrive either with the herring fishing proving the more robust enterprise.
