Ullapool and Dundonnell

Ullapool and Dundonnell

Ullapool is the main town in the Northwest Highlands, an attractive settlement planned by Thomas Telford, which seemingly floats on the surface of lovely Loch Broom. It is a wonderful centre for walkers, being at the centre of a fascinating part of the Highlands. The lush scenery immediately around Loch Broom contrasts with the impressive mountain ranges just to the south. The Fannichs are a range of nine Munros arranged along a fine ridge, crowned by shapely Sgurr Mor. On the opposite side of the main road is the Beinn Dearg range, a craggier, steeper group of peaks with fine views.

West of Loch Broom, reached via the Destitution Road, is the peaceful haven of Dundonnell. This area has a great variety of scenery, from the beautiful woodlands of Corrie Hallie to the lonely coastline of the Scoraig Peninsula and the great wilderness of the Fisherfield peaks. Towering over all is An Teallach, perhaps the most magnificent mountain in all Scotland.
