Situated in the splendour of the highland region of Scotland, Ross and Cromarty to be precise, Ullapool is one of the country’s forgotten gems, a small town of less than 1500 inhabitants that is extremely attractive and has remained largely unchanged for many years. Being in a remote and sparsely inhabited part of Scotland Ullapool ranks as the biggest town for miles around, and is popular with many different classes of visitor. Walkers take in the stunning local scenery while those wishing to relax could not choose a better place to do so. A thriving port many years ago, Ullapool – which sits at the edge of Loch Bloom – still plays host to ferries that go to and from Stornaway in the Outer Hebrides, and is also a fishing port.

Ullapool is great for hill walking. Two notable paths are Gleann na Sguaib and you can do some ridge walking on the Fannichs
Falls of Measach
These falls are located 12 miles from Ullapool. They spill into a deep narrow gorge that can be crossed on a suspension bridge which gives a vey impressive view of the falls.
