Fishing boats at Ullapool in the Scottish Highlands
Highlands of Scotland
Ullapool and Wester Ross has outstanding scenery and this is one of the many reasons people love to visit the Scottish Highlands. We hope our photographs of the Highlands inspire you to visit Scotland.
Ullapool is close to Inverness, and around 2 hrs drive. Ullapool is a 6-7 hr drive from Glasgow and Edinburgh. You can of course fly into Inverness and hire a car to explore the Scottish Highlands. While Inverness is sometimes called the gateway to the Highlands, Ullapool is the real gateway to the North Highlands and Islands. You visit to the Outer Hebrides from here as well as north to Sutherland and Caithness, with a journey south going to Poolewe and Gairloch and many other small hamlets and villages that make up Wester Ross.

Lochinver and Kinlochbervie are two of the communities you must visit if travelling north from Ullapool, and if you do get to Kinlochbervie then take a day or two to look around Old Shore More and the famous and mysterous and supposingly haunted Sandwood Bay. If you are like us and take your dogs with you nearly everywhere you should be aware that dogs are not allowed on the walk to Sandwood Bay.
Beinn Dearg Mor from summit
The area around Ullapool is famous for mountains areas including Fisherfield and An Teallach. Many of the mountains are Munros, that is they are over 3,000 feet high, and while there are many places you can go for an easy walk into the hills you should always be aware that the mountains and hills can also be treacherous and make sure you take a map and compass with you.
