Ullapool epitomises what every coastal Scottish village should look like. From
the whiteness of its shore frontage to the breathtaking landscape that surrounds
it, this is a place to go if you want unspoiled and remote village charm. Situated
along the north shore of Loch Broom, Ullapool's grid plan layout was designed
and built in 1788 by Thomas Telford and The British Fisheries Society.
The village thrived during the herring fishing boom which played a central part
in its economy. The modest fishing port now acts as the main ferry terminal to
the Western Isles and still remains hugely popular with tourists, leisure sailors
Ullapool has excellent tourist facilities and makes a great
base for exploring the Highlands.
