View of Ullapool, looking towards the Summer Isles

This photograph has been taken looking towards the Summer Isles, from above Ullapool. There are about two dozen small islands in the Summer Isles group, some of which can be accessed by boat from Achiltibuie or Ullapool during the summer months.

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. Although the 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.
