We visited Ullapool as a daytrip from Inverness. In July 2010 we explored the Highlands on a rented car, based our stay on some "major" locations' B&B, and used them to explore around, sometimes even a bit further, since during summer months days are long, sun rises early in the morning and sets late in the evening.

Ullapool, as mentioned before, was a daytrip from Inverness, and, weather wise, it was the worse day we spent in Scotland: it wouldn't stop raining, wind was blowing so hard I was afraid of getting too close to the shore, and it was freezing cold! Looked like a stormy January day in Lisbon rather than a mid-July summer day.

Neverthless, Ullapool enchanted us, it's a beautiful, weather beaten, fishing village; when going to Ullapool from Inverness you come across majestic green scenery, rolling hills, lagoons and everything you'd expect for Scotland. Also, the seascape is imposing, hard, beautiful, ? words are scarse to describe it.

    The views of Loch Assynt and Ardvreck Castle looks stunning. Too bad you had such an awful weather though.

    No wonder the B&Bs in Ullapool all advertise facilities for drying your clothes and shoes! That must be very necessary. This sounds like an interesting town and region (especially the harbour) despite the stormy weather.

    What a truly lovely page about the western shore of Scotland. Just beautiful photographs and informative narratives.

    Gorgeous little page about this Scottish gem. I have been to Inverness, Thurso, Wick and some more place along the eastern coast of the Highlands, but never really made it to the western shore.
