Around UllapoolView of Ullapool
Ullapool itself is a small highland coastal town with the usual pubs, restaurants and accommodation but its activities are mostly of an outdoor variety and the ferry port to Stornoway. The gem of the region is the penninsula of Achiltibuie with its miles of mostly deserted sandy beaches and virtually nowhere that would be unsafe for children to go feral. Here you find the famous Stac Polly mountain and the fabulous Summer Isles Hotel for those with the budget to afford fine dining. The falls of Measach are worth a visit and also taking the boat trips to the Summer Isles for wildlife watching.
If you find yourself near Ullapool you are either on your way to the Outer Hebrides or have already discovered that the Highlands of Scotland are universally beautiful when the sun shines but cold and windswept when the weather is less than perfect. Private House Stays particularly recommends the Achiltibuie penninsular but there are many other beauty spots around including: Ardessie Waterfalls, Camus a Charraig, Falls of Kirkaig, Falls of Measach and The Inverpolly National Nature Reserve. The Ben Wyvis National Nature Reserve is a noted venue for wild flowers.
Private House Stays has identified the following venues for your consideration: The Hydroponicum, Garden of the Future, Lael Forest Garden, The Lochbroom Museum and The Summer Isles Smokehouse
