Ullapool is one of the key points on the North Coast 500 route which loops around the Northern Highlands through Wester Ross, Caithness and Sutherland.
In addition to its variety of shops, laundry, garages, theatre, tourist information centre and award-winning heritage museum, by the shore there is a scenic 9 hole golf course where clubs are available for hire.
Should you be faced with a rainy day, then why not relax in our modern leisure centre with swimming pool, sauna, fully equipped gym and floodlit tennis courts for the more energetic.
For evening meals you will find many pubs and restaurants (some of which are renowned for their seafood specialities) all within easy walking distance of the house.
Ullapool is the ferry terminal for sailings across The Minch to the Isle of Lewis. During the summer you can take the early boat over to Stornoway and get a coach tour of the island before returning to Ullapool in the evening. This is an excellent day trip to visit the Hebrides if your time or money is limited, as the trip includes a visit to the famous Callanish standing stones.
Local boats from Ullapool harbour will take you on popular cruises to the Summer Isles or to see seals, sea birds, dolphins and other interesting wildlife.
