ullapool

We are 7 miles south of the fishing village of Ullapool, which is a beautiful place to visit, with it’s whitewashed houses. Ullapool is a very interesting and diverse village, hosting annually, a Book Festival, a Guitar Festival, a Dance Festival, a Beer Festival and the famous Loopallu music festival. The village has a beautiful swimming pool and leisure centre, a 9 hole golf course, many restaurants and hotels, and interesting craft shops.
Caledonian MacBrayne sails a daily ferry to Lewis, the largest of The Hebrides, so Ullapool is always bustling in the summer months. There are several boat trips to choose from, where passengers can see wildlife such as dolphins, seals, eagles, basking sharks and several different types of whales. In 2012, Ullapool hit the headlines as a pod of Orca (killer whales) was spotted by lucky holiday makers and locals alike, on board The Summer Queen.

If you would prefer to stay outside Ullapool, Clachan Farmhouse is perfect. We are still beside the sea, and you can take a beautiful walk along the lochside, admiring the views. For those who are more energetic, there are many Munros to be climbed, in fact the walker’s carpark for Beinn Dearg is just across the main road. To the south sits Sgurr Mor, the highest of the Fannichs. Trout and salmon fishing permits are available for those who fancy a cast on one of the nearby lochs or rivers. Four miles along from the farmhouse is Corrieshalloch Gorge.This breathtaking mile-long gorge, is one of the finest examples in Britain of a box canyon, is 61 m (200 ft) deep. The river plunges 46 m (150 ft) over the Falls of Measach.
Come and stay for one night or one week, we can suggest what you can do to make the most of your time in The Highlands.
