Ullapool

The Skye Bridge

We crossed back to the mainland using the Skye Bridge at Kyle of Lochalsh and headed north.  The drive was scenic as we drove through glens and moors, past lochs and pine forests.  In places the road was so narrow you couldn’t pass without using one of the numerous passing bays.   We saw what looked like a white flower growing prolifically by the road side.  We stopped to have a closer look and it was not a flower but resembled a cotton plant and turned out to be bog cotton, common in those parts.The journey took a long time and we were relieved to reach our destination of Ullapool, a harbour on Loch Broom, opening into the Minch, the channel dividing the mainland from the Outer Hebrides.  Our campsite at Ullapool overlooked the Loch and we watched the ferries making their way to and from Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides.
