Loch Broom Bay
Donald Ross

Loch Broom (Scottish Gaelic: Loch Bhraoin, loch of rain showers is a sea loch located in Ross and Cromarty, Scotland. Alternatively, the reference to broom is thought to be derived from the spreading yellow gorse.

The small town of Ullapool lies on the eastern shore of the loch.   Ullapool was founded in 1788 as a herring port.  Ullapool has a strong reputation as a centre for music and performance. In the summer, there are several Feisean and a large number of gigs in the local halls and hotels - especially in The Ceilidh Place. The Ullapool Guitar Festival takes place in early October every year, attracting high-caliber performers.
