A Quite Impossible Proposal by Andrew Drummond
A Quite Impossible Proposal, How Not to Build a Railway
by Andrew Drummond
Quite an expensive paperback, but full of fantastic photographs and information about the consideration of a Railway to Ullapool in the 1890’s. Well worth the money.
The book tells the whole sorry tale of the many attempts to improve transportation in the North West Highlands, set against the region’s socio-economic problems and civil unrest in the crofting communities. It features stories, facts and figures unearthed from a wide range of archives, including plans for the hoped for railways.
