The Arch Inn opened in 1973 on the site of the first building built by the British Fishing Society when Ullapool was being established over 200 years ago.
Originally it was an Inn and store for fishermen and fish curers, with stabling through the archway for the horses that carried goods overland to the village. Over the years The Arch Inn has changed many times, but still remains at the heart of the village for locals and tourists alike.
Situated on the shores of Loch Broom with magnificent views over the Fannich hills, it makes us the ideal base to explore the Scottish Highlands, or stop over if youʼre up on business.
The Arch Inn is extremely proud of our food and all of our dishes are produced on the premises using fresh, locally sourced products where possible. We’re the only bar and restaurant to have waterside seating in Ullapool.
The Arch Inn is also available for birthdays, anniversaries, private parties, dinners etc. in our upper floor function suite. Please contact us for further information.

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.
