The best things to do in Ullapool
I´ve been there for three nights last summer. My wish was to spend one of those days visiting Summer Islands, but it seems the weather wasn´t good enough to sail, and the day we leaving at morning, the ship was prepared to to the excursion. What a pity! To the north are the ruins Ardvreck Castle and Armadale coast and beaches seem nice to me. The Seafood Bar and Restaurant is a good place to dinner. This I can advice you!
Travel Tips for Ullapool
A hard place sprinkled with icing sugar
Ullapool is in Wester Ross which is also part of Highland Region and carries an Inverness post code. Here the connection stops - this is the wild highlands with lonely moorland sprinkled with the odd white cottage. Ringed by mountains and hills made from solid rock. A hard place, a walkers paradise, a place of breathtaking beauty constantlly changing but remaining how it always was. No mass tourism just like minded people who love the great outdoors. Every time we took a stop around each bend in the road another rough and beautiful vista met our eyes. Yes definately not a walk in the park but the dusting of snow softened the mountains and landscapes - pure rugged beauty dusted with icing sugar.
Pull me - Poolewe
Under the Outdoor Access Code everyone has a right to walk in the countryside almost anywhere. We had a long, pleasant walk which takes you past Scondubh the last little white cottage in the village. The road becomes private here but poses no problems - it just means no vehicles are allowed except those belonging to people from the estate. Continuing along the reinforced path we then passed through a new plantation - Cnoc na Lise (knoll of the garden) The views of the River Ewe are lovely from here, we continued walking along the river bank until we reached open moorland and the path to Kernsay Estate. Time to turn back to walk the two miles back into the villlage with two happy but tired dogs. Although the weather behaved for us on this walk with no snow showers, waterproof trousers and jackets are necessary even in summer. Walking boots are also an advantage especially if you leave the track to walk onto the moorland which is very, very wet and boggy. Dogs must be kept under close control or on a short lead. My dogs had no problem with the many sheep we encountered along the way and stayed quiet with no barking at all.
Ok, so you don't have to go to far off the beaten path for this one, just head down to the pier, and the small 'harbour'. If you're lucky, you'll see one of the local seals hanging around... on occasion, Killer whales have been seen reasonably close to the town too. Now thats a sight to behold!
