The light is brilliant up there and very clear. Local pubs are welcoming and food is good and not too touristy. Being on the coast... More

If you're looking for something completely different nearby Ullapool: go to the Inverpolly Nature Reserve. A rare combination of space and mountains. You only know what I mean by going there, it's really stunning!

Don't go here if you want to be molly coddled. This is a proper piece of wild country and is not suitable for people who want 'visitor attraction' style facilities. Do visit here if you want to see a truly gob smacking place that will take your breath away.
