The Captain’s Cabin is a unique Scottish Gift and Craft Shop, situated on the corner of Quay Street and Shore Street, directly above Lochbroom Hardware and next to The Ullapool Bookshop, in the beautiful village of Ullapool, Ross-shire. The Captain’s Cabin was first established as a Gift and Tea shop in 1946 by Mrs Constance Mitford of Lochbroom. The business has remained in the family ever since and is run today by her grand-daughter Mrs Katrina Thomson.
