The Scottish Highlands region
The region surrounding Ullapool is dominated by rugged mountains, and especially by Bheinn Ghobblach to the west, An Teallach to the south west, Beinn Dearg to the south east close to the head of Loch Broom, and Ben Mhòr na Còigich to the north. An Teallach is a massive mountain which dominates the area and consists of Torridonian sandstone, which is layered nearly horizontally. It is an easy climb but is several miles from the nearest road, so a long trek is needed before the ascent begins. The walker will be rewarded by magnificent views of the surrounds, especially to the sea and the islands to the west, but also to the south, and the desolate Whitbread wilderness.
Ullapool is a traditional fishing village on the North West Coast of Scotland. On the banks of Loch Broom and surrounded by mountains, the views are breathtaking. Facing South down the valley, Shore Street is a sheltered sun trap.
Ullapool has a strong reputation as a centre for music, the arts and performance.
The town boasts a small museum housed in a Telford Church, An Talla Solais, an arts centre with frequently changing exhibitions and workshops, a swimming pool and fitness centre, and several pubs (including the Arch Inn on the shores of Loch Broom, Argyll), restaurants and hotels. It is a centre for walkers, wildlife enthusiasts and other holidaymakers and is situated in a spectacular and remote part of the United Kingdom.
In May every year there is the three day Ullapool Book Festival which attracts a diverse range of writers and with work in both Scottish Gaelic and English. The Macphail Centre has a theatre hosting a regular programme of musical, dance and theatrical performances, many by the Scottish national companies but some work from smaller reps and travelling Edinburgh Fringe performers. Often the number of performances in any week will mean there is overspill to the Village Hall and other venues.
In July 2011, the Tall Ships visited Ullapool, a major event for the village and the surrounding area.Ullapool is the main ferry port to Lewis in the Outer Hebrides and a a popular base for walkers and fishers.
