Mill Street, Ullapool

This postcard shows a view of Mill Street, Ullapool. A man in a trilby walks down the centre of the street. 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. The streets were laid out on a grid pattern and some of the new buildings included curing sheds, storehouses, a pier and a schoolhouse. Mill Street has seen a lot of changes over the years and today is home to the town's High School and Public Library.
