Departing Applecross saw us travelling on single track roads hugging the coast line. The E/knitter spotted a small wool workshop and of course we had to stop. I’m told that you can never have too much wool, but the spare storage space in the already tightly packed campervan is at a premium. A few miles on she spots another wool shop and more wool for future projects was purchased. These shops are isolated in the middle of nowhere, but she still manages to seek them out.
The route followed the coast passing through Shieldaig, Gairloch and Inverewe eventually arriving at Ullapool, which is the highlands ferry port for the island of Lewis, & Harris.
When researching for this trip I had noted a Campsite right on a peninsular at Ullapool that looked appealing. As we headed into the town quite late in the afternoon I decide to try it. The site was large with a pay your £20 and pick a pitch policy.
A group of German Overland trucks were using the site
The town is within walking distance of the site and we had pleasant meander around before returning for the evening. The midges made a minor come back, so we shut the doors and settled in for the night.
