Ullapool, Scotland Luxury Cruises

A spellbinding port situated in the North Western Highlands, Ullapool has a wealth of gorgeous scenic sights and outstanding excursions to offer. A wonderful base from which to explore the wider highlands, Ullapool is a perfect place for cruisers interested in exploring between bouts of refreshing rest and relaxation.

The serenity of the highlands make them a superb spot to reflect, but they are also home to rugged landscapes of grassy plains and verdant mountainsides flourishing with flora and fauna ripe for a hiking excursion. One of the least spoiled natural environments in the UK, the port of Ullapool is famed the world over for its amazing geology, seascapes and wildlife. Alongside these natural marvels, the township itself is home to a far-reaching array of artists, craftsmen, culture and dining. Visiting Ullapool means a chance to explore one of the most famous natural sites in the world, while still retaining the atmosphere of a quaint, picturesque coastal getaway.

Sightseeing in Ullapool

Ullapool Museum

Run by an entirely voluntary organisation, the members of which endeavour to preserve the storied history of this magnificent port, the Ullapool museum is a sterling collection of documents, historical objects, and artifacts dating back hundreds of years.  The hugely informative centre is a great place to start for cruisers looking to enjoy an intriguing tour through Ullapool's history. Display areas include exhibits relating to the natural history, social history, emigration, fishing, religion and education on the island. Also on show are beautiful Bicentenary tapestries and quilts, hand stitched by past residents.

The Leckmelm Shrubbery & Arboretum

A Victorian woodland garden which was originally planted in 1870, this 12 acre tranquil garden was restored in 1987 to make sure its fertile grounds remained as beautiful as ever. Heated by the warmth of the Gulf Stream, despite a slightly chilly dominant climate in Ullapool, this wonderful woodland garden is home to palm trees, bamboo stalks and alpines, a rare sight for the British Isles. Rare trees and lush rose, rhododendrons and azalea gardens round out the beauty of this prosperous garden to spectacular effect, making it a must-see for any cruiser.

Ullapool Golf Course

Even if you've never had any enthusiasm for hitting the links in the past, a trip to this inspiring course will more than likely change your mind. Even if you're a first timer who is likely to spend more bludgeoning their way out of sand traps than striking a long, smooth drive down the pristine fairways, you can't deny the natural wonders surrounding this beautiful 9 hole golf course. Renovated in 1998 and still going strong, this amazing seaside attraction is also home to a welcoming clubhouse replete with upscale bar.

Shopping in Ullapool

For music, gifts, and more, make sure to visit Ceol Na Mara, which features a huge shop floor filled with extremely well crafted souvenirs to choose from, including glasswork and jewellery. In terms of fashion, the Unlimited Colour Company sells woollen clothing and local textile items which are hand knitted by experienced wool-makers who have passed down their secrets for generations.    

Eating out in Ullapool

For fresh, local seafood, make sure to book a table at the Morefield Hotel, which serves a scintillating menu of outstanding seafood dishes, including lobster, swordfish, and salmon platters. For a great smorgasbord of all their fresh specialities, make sure to order the seafood sampler.
