Ullapool, Scotland, is located in the far northern corner of the Scottish Highlands, on the east shore of Loch Broom. A hub for ferry boats coming in from the Outer Hebrides, it also also accessible by car, but other means of public transportation might be somewhat problematic, so it's better to have your own vehicle with you if you are heading this way.

Even though Ullapool has a population of only one thousand five hundred inhabitants, it is by far the biggest settlement in this side of Scotland and is definitely the best choice for you to base yourself in when discovering the region, especially because despite the tiny size of the place, you even have more options for Ullapool, Scotland hostels to choose from!

If you are in the region for sightseeing, Ullapool might not be the best choice for you, as it basically consists of only five bigger streets, a school, a church with a mini museum, an tiny art centre, and a supermarket. However, if you enjoy an active holiday and would like to discover the amazing nature of the Highlands, you are definitely at the right place! With a variety of walking track starting just outside the town, you can enjoy the real solitude offered by the barren mountain sides. It's named "The Great Wilderness Track" for good reason; the fifty-kilometre hike that connects Ullapool with Poolewe is one of the most rewarding challenges you can undertake in the country.

After a great day out in the wilderness, it will feel nice to sit down at one of the local pubs to enjoy a pint of beer -- and you are lucky here, because you are always guaranteed some kind of entertainment. As this is a place famous for its Gaelic heritage, there are numerous ceilidh (Scottish traditional dancing) events as well as fáiseans (Scottish cultural festivals) taking place all around the year.
