Ullapool Things to Do: 21 reviews and 64 photos
We stopped of at the beach at Gruinard Bay which lies facing the Atlantic Ocean, half way between Ullapool and Gairloch. We enjoyed our walk along this deserted but windswept beach. Cuileann tried a clean up operation here using some kelp - the beach is pristinely clean so she really shouldn't have bothered. Looking out to sea we saw Gruinard Island a place which wasn't clean for around 50 years because in 1942 the Island was contaminated with Anthrax by the Government during WWll. All the sheep on the Island died within days, after the clean up operation they did put a flock of sheep back on the Island and happily they survived.
