Walking

Within Ullapool there are riverside and beach walks where you can take in the village and surroundings. The sea front is great to stroll along and watch the boats landing at Ullapool Harbour. The beach out to Rhue Point is a good afternoon or evening stroll. For the more serious walker and climber, we are surrounded by great paths and climbs ranging from forest walks to more strenuous climbs. Within less than an hour you can be at famous hills and mountains including Stac Pollaidh, Cul Mor, Cul Beag, the world famous Suilven and south to Beinn Dearg and An Teallach. Please look at the below Walk Highlands links for more detailed information.

Cycling

You can now enjoy cycling in many places - but check with the local estate before you go! There’s no such problem with single track roads, however, as nearly all of these are for public use.

The area has a wealth of good cycling to offer along relatively flat coastal routes such as the one out to Rhua Reidh Lighthouse, or wooded routes such as the one to Badrallach (near Dundonnell)

Loch and River Fishing in Wester Ross

Dotted around Wester Ross are thousands of sparkling lochs and rivers, which are home to salmon and brown trout. Fishing on inland lochs and waterways is illegal without the owner’s permission. However a number of estates rent out salmon fishing and you can purchase permits for fishing some of the lochs. Call in to the local shops in the area you want to fish to buy a permit, or check FishPal for details of when and where to fish.
