The story behind the image
Over the next couple of days I’ll post a mini series covering the short, yet extremely beautiful drive from Ullapool in Scotland to Plockton via Aultbea. If it does not rain, this scenic drive holds true to its name with many awesome viewpoints that perfectly shows off the rough beauty and transquility of the Scottish north west.
Let’s get started in Ullapool. We had been driving for a while that day and were pleased to get to this tiny but very busy town at the shores of the georgeous Loch Broom. Back in 2005, Ullapools main attraction used to be the ferry that departs for Stornoway on the Outer Hebrides. As all the ferries on Scotlands west coast, this ferry has been operated by Caledonian MacBrayne.
Because Ullapool is a busy ferry harbour, you should reserve your accommodation in advance – otherwise finding a suitable place for the night may become a challenge. Little did we know that this would become a challenge for us later that day…
