GREAT BRITAIN - Scotland : Loch Broom at sunset

Location of LOCH BROOM in SCOTLAND :

Loch Broom (Scottish Gaelic : Loch Bhraoin, loch of rain showers) is a sea loch located in Ross and Cromarty, Scotland. The small town of Ullapool lies on the eastern shore of the loch. Alternatively, the reference to broom is thought to be derived from the spreading yellow gorse.

Ullapool (Ullapul or Ulapul in Gaelic) is a small town of around 1 300 inhabitants in Ross and Cromarty, Highland, Scotland. Despite its small size, it is the largest settlement for many miles around, and is a major tourist destination of Scotland. The North Atlantic Drift passes by Ullapool, bringing moderate temperatures. A few small palm trees grown in town.
