Ullapool Bookshop launches new online website
Ullapool Trading are pleased to announce the launch of their new website. The site at www.ullapooltrading.com will begin selling a carefully chosen selection of local interest books, maps and boxed greetings card. Launching on 1st March, customers will be able to ship to the UK and Europe.
Katrina Thomson, Owner of Ullapool Trading, said: ?Local interest items are often hard to source online, and by launching this website we hope to give access to the fantastic array of talent found in the Scottish Highlands.?
The Captain?s Cabin was originally opened in 1946 by Constance Mitford as a gift shop and tearoom with Ullapool Bookshop opening in 2003 in the next door premises. Having passed from mother to daughter for three generations, her grand-daughter Katrina hopes to continue her legacy to the area through this evolution of a website.
For further information, please contact Katharine Douglas at [email protected]

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.
Notes to editors:
The website has been designed locally in Ullapool by Steve Douglas, www.steve-douglas.com
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
