The Raven Now Roosts in Ullapool
Cross the Highlands from Inverness to the sheltered shores of Loch Broom and the village of Ullapool. It is a hauntingly beautiful location; stunning in the long days of summer sun, moody and magnificent in the darkness of winter - a perfect roosting place for The Green Man & the Raven's Quest, with corvids aplenty. Make sure you visit the wonderful Ullapool Bookshop where, among many gems, you will find your copy of The Green Man & the Raven's Quest. Not your average holiday read! The Night Ship, Ailsa Craig, and Beast's Lair, all set in Scotland, are the perfect poems to read after a trip to the Summer Isles, or while watching out for sea otters, selkies and the ferry as it shears through the water towards the Isle of Lewis.
