Set amid a panorama of mountains, sea and islands, Ullapool is justifiably known as the “Jewel of Wester Ross”. A thriving village on the fringe of the Atlantic and one of Scotland’s main fishing ports, Ullapool – for many years a leading tourist centre – has now even more facilities for holidaymakers.
Great hotels, restaurants, tea rooms, shops, grocers, a swimming pool and leisure centre, and a spectacular loch-side golf course are just the beginning. Ardmair Bay is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, hill walkers, climbers, runners, open water swimmers, divers and sea farers of all persuasions.
Ardmair is a beautiful location worthy of a visit in its own right but also a great location to base your holiday and explore this wonderful part of Scotland. Surrounded by great walks and climbs, fishing, hunting, boating, diving and some great villages with plenty to see and do.

Ullapool was recently described as an ‘outdoor paradise’ with a “Scandinavian twinkle in winter and Canadian-style adrenalin in summer” by Outdoor Fitness, a multi-fitness lifestyle magazine.
Ullapool is the mainland port for the drive-on-drive-off ferry to Stornoway in the Hebrides, meaning there are plenty of stunning islands to visit nearby. The fascinating Summer Isles provide Loch Broom and Ullapool with shelter from the big waves of the Atlantic – and they’re a pretty spectacular place to visit too!
