Welcome to the busy fishing port of Ullapool. Situated in the sheltered waters of Loch Broom, a natural harbour carved by the glaciers of the last ice age, Ullapool offers good protection from the open waters of the Minch. The harbour area covers 26 square miles, providing deep water anchorage for large vessel such as CRUISE SHIPS and drill ships. The modern pier has been upgraded and enlarged several times in its 200 year history and provides ample berthage for many vessels, along with facilities such as shore power, tube ice, linkspan, bunkering and fresh water.
There are 8 trots at £12 per night payable to the Harbour Assistants anytime day or night. To get in touch the boats should either use the VHF channel 14 or 16 or telephone 01854 612091 (24hrs). The harbour is trying to keep the outer steps clear so yachts can come alongside for water and stores etc. If visitors wish to come to the pier they should use the same contact arrangements.

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.
