As we have a couple more months left up here we decided we needed to make another trip to Ullapool to stock up on essentials. We managed to get away early Monday morning and were in Ullapool by 10am, having witnessed a Stag running across the road en route.
Having parked up we decided to explore the town a bit more as we had plenty of time, but every day goes better after a hearty breakfast! The Frigate cafe caught our eye on previous occasions so we headed there and were not disappointed.
Their menu looks interesting and we’re going to go back and sample their pizzas before the end of the season, but we’ll probably go back on the bike. It was lovely to be in human clothes for a change rather than the uniform we have to wear every day so we made the most of it and did our tourist bit.
We visited the ferry office to find out about sailing times for journeys across to Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. Our plan is to go across one Tuesday evening and then tour the island on the Wednesday, getting the late ferry back. Once we’d established timings we wandered around the town, and found some gorgeous Fair Trade rugs that we’re going to go back and buy once we’ve measured up the floor space.
Having exhausted the town and visited the campsite there to get our bearings we did what we came here for and visited the supermarket. We replenished our supplies and made our way back to Poolewe where we unloaded and re-established ourselves on our pitch.
The next day we’ve earmarked for a ‘spring clean’ day. Not very exciting but these things have to be done…even though Dean keeps trying to get out of it!
