Ullapool Accommodation

About Ullapool area

Our recommended B&B accommodation in the Ullapool / Lochinver region covers a large and sparsely populated area which includes the communities of  Ullapool, Achiltibuie and as far north as Stoer & Kylesku, near Lochinver.

Ullapool is one of the liveliest towns on the North West coast and you will almost always be able to find a pub with live music playing during the summer months. Lochinver is, by way of contrast, a place where you can go to experience the peace and quiet of the Assynt wilderness. 

The village of Ullapool was developed in 1788 as a project by the British Fisheries Society who aimed to capitalise on the prolific stocks of herring in Loch Broom. As a result, the village is a neat array of wide streets that run parallel to the shore front. The herring stocks started to decline in the 1830’s, but fishing is still a contributor to the Ullapool economy and you should be able to see some fishing boat activity during your visit. 

Lochinver also owes its existence to fishing and it is now a more active fishing port than Ullapool. The village doesn’t feel quite as quaint or homely as Ullapool as it is spread out over a wider area. However, Lochinver does have a great backdrop with the very distinctive dome of the Suilven mountain dominating the skyline.
