Things to do
Golfing In Ullapool
Ullapool Golf Course. This is a very picturesque nine-hole course with a touch of links and moorland to it. It was opened in 1998 by Prince Andrew and has since gone from strength to strength. With great views of the Loch Broom and the Summer Isle it meanders down to the shores of Loch Broom.
Situated on the northern border of Ullapool, a highland village with a long heritage, the golf course offers outstanding views of Lochbroom and the Summer Isles beyond. We are within walking distance of the village and our club house offers changing facilities and refreshments if required.
Fishing Around Ullapool
Ullapool offers flyfishing, bait fishing, bank or boat, salmon, trout, rainbows, loch or sea. Ullapool is ideal for amateurs and experts. You can purchase fishing permits for many lochs around the Ullapool area. These can be purchased at local shops in the village. At present there is no organised sea fishing from Ullapool Harbour. A short drive north of Ullapool there is Boat Hire for Sea fishers at Ardmair caravan park. Ullapool, lying on loch Broom at the mouth of the Ullapool River, is one the the main fishing ports and tourist centres of Wester Ross and makes an ideal centre for the trout fisherman, with many small lochs to be explored in the hills to the north, west and south.
Motorcycle Touring Ullapool
Motorcycling is, in my opinion the best way to travel and definitely the best way to see/tour the Scottish Highlands. The Scottish Highlands appeal to many bikers including myself, the Scottish Highlands offer some great twisty roads with some of the best scenery in the UK.
Dependent on where you are travelling from will depend on what route you take to tour the Scottish Highlands however it is my personal opinion that the West Coast offers better roads and better scenery.
Hillwalking Around Ullapool
There are many walks in the Ullapool area to suit everyone including mountains, rocky coasts and long inland footpaths. The choice of mountains to climb is numerous and the area has some of the finest summits in the North-Western Highlands.
