Ullapool and Wester Ross provides the visitor with a good choice of things to do if you want to get away from urban life - come wind, rain or shine - you will find plenty to do as we know through 25 years holidaying experience in the area - however come prepared - boots, wellies, waterproofs, cameras, fishing rods or nets, golf clubs, picnic basket, bucket and spade etc etc - but if you have forgotten any or one of them - we can usually find them or send you down to the local village hardware shop.
