Visit Ullapool and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Ullapool, Highland. The large village of Ullapool was founded in 1788 by the British Fisheries Society as an extensive fishing station, mainly for herring and white fish; Loch Broom, on whose shores Ullapool stands, had been a notable fishing ground since at least the 16th century. The street plan and design of some of the houses were vetted by Thomas Telford. The fishing unfortunately declined in the early 19th century, but revived during the Second World War when the East coast was mined and dangerous. The original buildings were used once more, and the village is now a busy centre of the fishing fleet from October to March.
The closure of the car ferry service between Mallaig, Kyle of Lochalsh, and Stornoway,and the opening of the Ullapool-Stornoway service, have made Ullapool the chief mainland port link with Lewis and other parts of the Hebrides.
