Welcome to Ullapool, Loch Broom and the North West Highlands of Scotland. An area of outstanding scenery, nature and culture, Ullapool and the surrounding area offers the opportunity to explore and experience both the Highlands and Islands, be it for a day, weekend or even weeks at a time.

Only an hour from Inverness, and the ideal base for discovering the North West Highlands. A gateway to the Summer Isles and Outer Hebrides, stepping stone to the North West GeoPark, on the shore of the Wester Ross Marine Protected Area and UNESCO BioSphere, and key location for the North Coast 500. A destination in its own right for nature and wildlife, outdoor activities, music, arts, food and drink, festivals, history and Highland culture: we have it all and welcome you.

Many of the pivotal discoveries of the Victorian era that contributed to the development of the concept of plate tectonics were made in this area, and there are still regular international geological conferences.
