Ullapool

things to do & see

Ullapool is a great place to use as a base whilst exploring the Highlands with huge amounts of history, geology, wildlife and culture all around. Here are some ideas. Click for links.

North West Highland Geopark

Ullapool is the gateway to the North West Highland Geopark - an area decribed as the "Cradle of Geology" and home to some amazing mountains and geological features. There is a visitor centre at Knockan Cliff..

Ullapool Museum

Situated in a renovated 'Telford Church', the museum offers an insight into the history and culture of Loch Broom and Ullapool. Good language support and census/parish records.

Wildlife Tours

As well as wildlife and nature all around us, tour boats from Ullapool Harbour visit the Summer Isles encountering sea birds, seal, whale and dolphin and a pair of White Tailed Sea Eagles that nest nearby. You will no doubt encounter highland wildlife just getting here!

Pipe Band

The Ullapool and Loch Broom Youth Pipe Band have gained an award winning international reputation and play and perform in and around the village throughout the summer along with local Highland dancers.

Golf

A nine hole course in the village offers a friendly welcome and some stunning scenery to play in. On the shore of Loch Broom, you can watch fishing boats and cruise boats pass as you play.

Loopallu

Ullapool's very own music festival. Small but with a lot of big acts. The festival is held across the road from Silver Darlings so we are ideally placed for revellers coming up for the weekend!

Climbing

The hills, glens, coast and mountains all around us offer some of the best walking and climbing in the world. It would be impossible to list all the locations but walkhighlands.co.uk is a good starting point.

Guitar

Ullapool Guitar Festival is a gathering of some of the world's finest guitarists holding workshops, concerts and sessions. If you like guitar this is one to be at.
