The Captain’s Cabin

Captain’s Cabin: Ullapool’s Premier Scottish Gift and Craft Shop

Nestled in the heart of Ullapool on the scenic junction of Quay Street and Shore Street, Captain’s Cabin stands as a testament to Scottish heritage and craftsmanship. Adjacent to the renowned Ullapool Bookshop and above Lochbroom Hardware, this unique gift shop offers a blend of history, culture, and exquisite local and Scottish crafts.

A Rich Historical Tapestry

Captain’s Cabin, housed in one of Ullapool’s oldest buildings, echoes the village’s origins as a fishing hub, established in 1788 by the British Fishery Society. Initially serving as a fishing store and salt warehouse, it transitioned in 1946 into the beloved gift and craft shop under the stewardship of Mrs. Constance Mitford. Today, her granddaughter, Mrs. Katrina Thomson, continues this legacy, preserving the building’s historic charm while offering an array of unique and unusual items.

A Curated Collection of Scottish Treasures

Under the eye of Katrina Thomson, Captain’s Cabin boasts a diverse selection of goods, from traditional Scottish Fine Soaps to contemporary Jelly Cat toys. Visitors can expect to find an array of products sourced from small Scottish manufacturers and renowned brands like Dunoon Pottery and Ulster Weavers. The shop also celebrates local craftsmanship with its offerings of handmade crafts, knitwear, and the iconic Harris Tweed handbags and purses.

A Glimpse into Ullapool’s Past

The shop’s interior, with its historical display cabinets, offers a unique glimpse into the local wildlife and maritime history, including a replica model of the SV Ross-shire. The original beams and thick walls of the 18th-century building serve as a backdrop to the eclectic mix of pottery, knitwear, soaps, and an assortment of food goodies that captivate the imagination and senses of all who visit.

A Destination for Unique Finds

Captain’s Cabin is not just a shop but a destination for those seeking items that embody the essence of Scotland and the uniqueness of Ullapool. From luxurious soaps to handcrafted jewellery and textiles, the Cabin is a treasure trove for gifts that tell a story and celebrate the rich cultural tapestry of Scotland.
