We arrived in Ullapool on Friday afternoon just a couple of hours before the sunset.
Tired after our train ride from Aberdeen to Inverness and the short bus ride from Inverness to Ullapool, we quickly headed to our B&B, a lovely place by the water where we were welcomed with a glass of homemade liqueur each, before getting down the harbour for a spot of sightseeing and boat spotting.
It was a warm night, the sky was covered in golden orange hues that later on turned into a pandesia of purple and hot pink colours, turning the whole scenery into something pretty spectacular!
Without any desire to rush and miss out on this unique moment, we sat down the beach and observed the sun setting behind the Highlands.
The water reflections were quite spectacular and dramatic!
When the air got chillier we headed in the one of the best pubs Ullapool has to offer, Frigate, that was highly recommended by our B&B landlord.
Frigate took us by total surprise!
The interior was cosy and inviting, with its wooden tables, arched windows, and freshly made pavlovas on display, I knew we were in the right place.
We sat by the window and ordered the vegetarian platter (for me) and the mackerel filled cannelloni (for him) for starters, before getting stuck in our main dishes – fresh langoustines sourced by Loch Broom earlier this morning for me and seabass for him. Just delicious.
We chatted to the couple in the next table, who were wondering why I carried two cameras with me before explaining to them that photography is part of my job, and helped them re-arrange and style their table for a few Instagram shots, which they find all very amusing, before heading to Ceilid Place to meet our friends who had just arrived from stormy Aberdeen.
In case I haven’t mentioned it yet, we are here for the wedding of our friends Kyle and Georgia.
The wedding is taking place in 2 hours from now so I should propably start getting ready and leave you here with this.
More updates from Ullapool and the wedding tomorrow!
