In June 2019 the outstanding work of volunteers in the museum was recognised with the highest award of its kind in the UK, namely the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service.

Lord Lieutenant Mrs Janet Bowen presented the award during a special tea party to mark the occasion.  

Mrs Bowen said:  "Ullapool is full of amazingly talented and skilled people.  This museum project has released those skills to the benefit of the community as a whole.  It has also allowed the museum community to offer kindness, affection and friendship and to give a sense of achievement, while creating a gem in the middle of Ullapool.

"This is a celebration of many long hours of voluntary work by a huge number of the community.  It is a celebration of inspired leadership and community involvement.  It is a celebration of remarkable fundraising, including yards of baking and gallons of soup.  It is a celebration of many skills, including carpentry, electrical and plumbing, IT, literary, artistic and people skills.  It is also a celebration of generosity."

Chairwoman of Ullapool Museum Trust, Ellie Ing, said:  "We are so delighted to be awarded this wonderful accolade.  We would not have achieved this had we not had the support and help from the local community and the dedication and hard work of our volunteers who have sought to present and preserve our local story for the past 24 years."
