UllapoolTranquil 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 and anglers.

Ullapool has excellent tourist facilities and makes a great base for exploring the Highlands.
