Our colleagues at The Captain’s Cabin-Ullapool have now finished opening in the evenings for this summer and their normal hours are now Monday – Saturday 9am-6pm and Sunday from 10am-5pm.

We have a large number of beautiful coffee table style books in stock at the moment. However, this one has really caught our eye: ‘Highland Retreats’ by Mary Miers (The Architecture and and Interiors of Scotland’s Romantic North.’
Featuring breathtaking photographs of some of Scotland s most remarkable and little-known houses, this book tells the story of how incomers adopted the North of Scotland as a recreational paradise and left an astonishing legacy of architecture and decoration inspired by the romanticized image of the Highlands. Known as shooting lodges because they were designed principally to accommodate the parties of guests that flocked north for the annual sporting season, these houses range from Picturesque cottages ornées and Scotch Baronial castles to Arts and Crafts mansions and modern eco-lodges. A good number survive little altered in their original state, and some are still owned by descendants of the families that built them. Images from the famous Country Life Picture Library and specially commissioned photographs evoke the dramatic settings and arresting detail of these houses, making the book as appealing to decorators and architectural historians as it is to travelers and sportsmen.
