Ullapool grew up round the original herring fishery trade where a point of high land jutts into the north-eastern shores of Loch Broom.
Popular for boating bathing and fishing with a local ferry Ullapool has become one of the well known picturesque hotspots not to be missed in the highlands.
Beautiful scenery can be snapped up if you head for Lochinver which is approx. 17 miles north of Ullapool. Remember to have your camera prepared for the Summer Isles which is approx. 12 miles north-west.
Be surprised to know that although in the Highlands of Scotland, Ullapool is in the gulf stream which means the region hardly ever gets snow and you may even see the odd palm tree.
