A CREATIVE ENVIRONMENT FOR STUDYING AND MAKING ART
Bridge House Art
ON THIS DAY....and every day in April
a 30 Day Project of simple art exercises for all.
COVID - 19
We here at Bridge House Art realise how fortunate we are to have rounded off the portfolio course, at a time, not so long ago, when we were all able to celebrate together the completion of the course with a wonderful exhibition, which was attended by so many friends, family and members of our community.
We now have some breathing space until our summer school, which is planned to start in mid-June. We will be keeping you all informed and following all up-to-date advice about opening our doors again to all you good people and loyal supporters of Bridge House Art. We want to ensure your safety and the safety of others and will be reviewing the situation daily.
For now, we are all working remotely at home and will be using the time to come up with some activities and solutions to keep our creative community engaged. Let's all keep in touch and support each other!
We wish you all to stay safe and well. Love from Eleanor and the Bridge House Art team x
HOW TO FIND US
Bridge House Art is situated on Old Moss Road. Travelling from the south, just follow the main road (A835) through Ullapool heading north. Old Moss road joins the A835 on the left hand side just before you cross the road bridge over the Ullapool river. Once you have turned left Bridge House Art is on your right hand side. If arriving from the north, as you arrive into Ullapool down the hill, past the industrial estate on your left, there is a right hand turning just after the bridge over the Ullapool river. Turn right onto Old Moss Road and the studios are on your right.
Ullapool is easy to reach from the south. It is about I hour 15 minutes drive north west of Inverness on the A835. Edinburgh and Glasgow are approximately 5 hours journey by car.
Ullapool has good bus links with Inverness, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Perth and Stirling, chiefly because it is a major ferry port to the Western Isles. The Citylink bus service from Inverness bus station runs in connection with the arrival/departure of the Calmac ferry into Ullapool. Pick up/drop off is at the ferry terminal. Tel Citylink enquiries on: 08705 50 50 50 or check www.citylink.co.uk There is also a summer service from Inverness to Durness that drops off/ picks up from Ullapool. Stagecoach service 61 also connects Ullapool with Inverness.
Ullapool doesn't have a train station and train passengers must disembark at Inverness to complete their journey by bus. Tel Scotrail enquiries on: 0845 7484950 or website
