On The Map: Ullapool is located on Scotland’s northwest cooast. The town is approximately 1.5 hours northwest of Inverness on the A835 road.
Upon arrival in town, you are immediately struck by Ullapool’s whiteness and by its regularity of design and layout. This is a legacy of the town’s origins, being designed and built in 1788 by Thomas Telford and the British Fisheries Society. The aim was to exploit a boom in herring fishing at the time. This peaked and then, in an early example of overfishing, declined from the 1830s. Fishing has remained at the heart of the town’s economy, but in recent times, tourism has also been a big player. Surrounded on all sides by majestic mountain peaks, Ullapool is a scenic feast for the eyes. It also makes a great base for exploring the northwest of Scotland, particularly those parts that are a little too remote to reach from Inverness, the traditional ‘Gateway to the Highlands’. In warmer months, boat trips run to the Summer Isles and around Loch Broom, where you will see an abundance of wildlife including seals & dolphins. Ullapool is also the access point for the ferry to Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. Ullapool boasts some very nice pubs, and a good range of shops.
