Highlights Ullapool Explorer Tour:

Discover how geological features like the Moine Thrust, glaciers from the last Ice Age, and raised beaches shaped the landscape before you.

Empathise with the Highlanders who, faced with poverty and a lack of prospects, emigrated to Canada on board the ship Hector.

Encounter the Herring Girls, the women who did the exhausting work of gutting and salting the fish in often harsh conditions.

Admire how local people who emigrated built a successful life in America in the early 20th century.

Step back in time to find out about Ullapool's Viking heritage and Lochbroom's early settlers who built duns thousands of years ago.

Uncover how the lives of people in Ullapool changed after the large herring shoals (silver darlings) disappeared.

Shake your head in disbelief while listening to the captivating story of an infamous woman of Lochbroom and her dubious life.

Be amazed at the vibrant trade and exchange between the crews of the Klondyker factory ships and the inhabitants of Ullapool in the 1970s to 1990s.

A range of old photographs will connect you to the people who used to live here and bring the past to life.

See you in Ullapool!
