Open 6 days a week

Here at The Captain’s Cabin gift shop in Ullapool we are still open 6 days a week from Monday – Saturday 9am-5pm, offering a wide range of gifts, toys, knitwear, hats and gloves, bags and wallets or purses, throws, candles and candlesticks and so much more. Throughout the winter we also have a Sale section where older items are available at vastly reduced prices, while stocks last.

Happy shopping!

Creel Christmas Tree

The world famous Ullapool Creel Christmas Tree is taking shape and here was the view along West Shore Street this weekend just before the creels were added. Very soon the whole fabulous display will illuminate Ullapool courtesy of Ullapool Fire and Light fund . We can’t wait for the light switch on, so put the date in your diary of November 29th at 5.30pm. Late night shopping will also be available throughout the village that evening. #shoplocal #christmaslights
