Welcome to Ullapool, a town with a population of 1300 located on the North-West coast of Scotland on latitude of 57.9 degrees.
The name Ullapool has Norse (Viking) origins which translates as ‘Olaf’s Farm’ thus indicating a history dating back about 1200 years. The town today traces back to establishment of a fishing industry community in 1788. Although commercial fishing continues, tourism is now the principal economic activity aided by the town’s position on a Loch Broom, a large sea loch which is also an important ferry port for crossings to and from the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides.
Ullapool is normally encountered by visitors either (a) travelling to/from the Outer Hebrides by ferry and/or (b) undertaking a motor tour covering the rugged North-West of Scotland.
