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
