Hotels in Ullapool
Ullapool is one of Scotland's main tourist destinations. It sits in a fairly remote part of the Scottish Highlands - with a population of less than 2,000, it's still the biggest town for miles. Many of the buildings are Ullapool hotels and guesthouses to cater for the large number of visitors all year round. There are direct ferries from the town over to Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. Ullapool is also at one end of the A835, which leads to Inverness.
Nature and wildlife
The area is unspoilt and beautiful, and Ullapool has previously been voted one of the UK's top ten towns for outdoor holidays.
You're likely to see Highland cows in the fields around the town. It's also common to spot red deer wandering around, and to see marine animals such as the porpoise and grey seal.
Kids can get involved through the Ullapool Wildlife Watch group, which runs activities and tours for young people. The scavenger hunts and nature trails are suited for those aged five to 12.
Sightseeing in Ullapool
The town is almost completely surrounded by mountains and rugged rock formations.
An Teallach dominates the landscape – it's a huge mountain formed from Torridonian sandstone. The mountain's base is several miles from the nearest major road, so attempting a climb will involve walking to it first.
Go gorge walking at Corrieshalloch Gorge National Nature Reserve. The gorge is close to a mile long, and is assumed to have been cut 2.6 million years ago by melting glacier water from the Ice Age.
Arts and culture
The artistic ambience in Ullapool is strong, and performers from the annual Edinburgh Fringe regularly stop in town.
On certain Thursdays in summer, you might see Highland dancing and drum playing in the Pier Head car park.
An Talla Solais is the arts centre, led by the local community. It holds regularly changing art exhibitions, runs courses and classes, and has a special gallery for members.
