there's something for everyone

Surrounded by wilderness and sea, the Village of Ullapool is a thriving community, welcoming many visitors each year.

 Stroll through the gardens at Lechmelm or Lael forest and its Arboretum. Challenge yourself to a Munro or 9 holes on the Links golf course. Enjoy the tranquillity of fly fishing or the rush of cold water wild swimming.  Lose yourself in the peace and quiet, then immerse yourself in live music.

 art and crafts 

Visit Ullapool's contemporary art gallery, An Talla Solais, then browse the local ceramics, textiles and crafts in shops like Ceard.

Book an art course run by Bridge House Art or Jan Kilpatrick or visit one of the local artist studios or shops.

culture and festivals

Ullapool has a lively music scene with artists playing regularly at the Ceilidh Place, the Arch, the Argyll and more. Traditional music and dance can be enjoyed at the Feis.

 The guitar festival is on in October and for literary lovers, we have the Book festival in May. 

geology and WIldlife

Take a boat trip to the Summer Isles to see the many different sea birds, seals, otters and if you're lucky, a dolphin or whale!

Cross the suspension bridge over the gorge at  Corrieschalloch or visit the geology centre at Knockan Crag at the start of the north west highland geopark.

eating out

Ullapool has an excellent  variety of cafes, pubs and restaurants, all with their own individual charm, including the newly opened 'Dipping Lugger', the BBC award winning 'Seafood Shack' and two great fish and chip shops.

If you fancy a local tipple there are two gin distilleries.


We support local facilities like the Ullapool Museum, the Wester Ross Biosphere,  An Talla Solais art gallery, Bridge House Art and the New Broom community hub which all provide activities for our guests.

We are updating our ADVENTURE page at the moment but if you're looking for something more adventurous you can find links to sea kayaking, mountaineering, bike hire and many others on the Welcome Ullapool website.
