[Ullapool from the Stornoway ferry]

On the shores of coastal Loch Broom in the Northwest Highlands, this pocket-sized fishing town is dwarfed by the car ferries which dock here from Stornoway. For many visitors (and residents) Ullapool is an unexceptional but useful place: not only is it a gateway to the Outer Hebrides, but it has the region's largest supermarket, scores of places to stay and superb hill walks within easy driving distance. On rainy days (which number over 200 each year) you can retreat along with everyone else to the interesting town museum, or visit the waterfall at Corrieshalloch Gorge. Some of the restaurants have become overpriced tourist traps - particularly since the creation of the North Coast 500 driving route which calls here - so check online reviews carefully.
