Roaming in the Gloaming

Roaming in the gloaming in Ross and Cromarty. Dumbarton woman MT Rainey has produced an evocative essay of photographs of Ullapool, a town of around 1,500 inhabitants in the Scottish Highlands. Despite its small size, Ullapool is the largest settlement for many miles around and an important port and tourist destination for places such as Stornoway in the Outer Hebrides. Although it is deep midwinter and Hogmanay approaches, it is not so cold here as in much of Scotland since the North Atlantic Drift passes Ullapool, moderating the temperature. The port’s Christmas lights meanwhile are innovative and eye-catching to say the least and made from creels for lobster fishing.
