At the beating cultural heart of Ullapool, the Ceilidh Place is a rendezvous for travellers, musicians, philosophers and anyone else drawn to good conversation, good food and good living. Started in 1970 by the actor Robert Urquhart, the Ceilidh Place grew out of the boatshed at Broomview Cottage with aspirations to be a place for eating, meeting, talking and singing. A sign outside invited musicians to sing or play for their supper. If they were good, their supper could take some time. These days, the boatshed has expanded and food is served all day, from breakfast, scones and coffee to soups and salads, afternoon tea, ‘chittery bites’, supper dishes and even an after-the-kitchen’s-closed plate of something. Conscious of their carbon footprint, they take pride in getting fish from the pier, tatties from the lochside and herbs from the garden, although they’ve yet to crack the bananas.
