Located in the Northern Scottish Highlands on the banks of Loch Broom, Ullapool is in the most idyllic setting imaginable. It was first established as a herring port in 1780 by the British Fisheries Industries and today it is considered one of the top outdoor destinations in the UK. With mountains, forests and a lovely loch, Ullapool has something for everyone and its landscape has been compared to the Canadian wilderness. There are even golden eagles and wildcats to be seen in the Inverpolly National Nature Reserve, as well as Stac Pollaidh, a mountain with very distinctive ridges at the top, which is very popular with walkers and climbers.
If you prefer less adventurous pastimes, Ullapool is a great place to have something to eat whilst taking in the beautiful scenery, and if you are there in May, you can enjoy Ullapool’s annual book festival, which showcases works in both Scots Gaelic and English, as well as many other music and theatre festival throughout the year. Or if you feel like going further afield, you can catch a ferry from Ullapool to the Outer Hebrides.
