With our beautiful natural scenery, there’s no shortage of dog-friendly fun to be had in Ullapool. Before “embarking” on your next visit with your pup, add some of these dog-friendly things to do to your itinerary. Let’s start with the obvious, Let’s go for a walk!
Take a Walk
If you and your pup love the great outdoors, then look no further. Ullapool has it all. Hill walking, Forests, river runs or a casual stroll around the Loch. Ullapool is situated in the beautiful Scottish Highlands surrounded by riverside and beach walks all within in a few minutes’ walk from The Seaforth. The seafront with its magnificent views is wonderful to walk along and watch the boats landing at Ullapool Harbour, the beach out to Rhue Point is a good afternoon or evening stroll and take in the sunset over the Summer Isles or walk the hill behind and look out to Ben Mor Coigach and over Ardmair.
From the village, you can walk up to Braes and get a stunning view down to Ullapool and the sea and at for the more serious walker and climber, we are surrounded by great paths and climbs ranging from forest walks to more strenuous climbs.
Ullapool also has a world-famous hill walk just behind the village accessible from within the village. Within 30 minutes you can be looking over the village and loch and out to the isles beyond.
Day at the Beach
There is nothing better than spending time at the beach with your beloved pups. Ardmair Beach is located 8 minutes away, about 4 miles north of The Seaforth, following the A835 road. It is a popular holiday destination, where you can find a campsite, several summer houses, and plenty of activities on the Kanaird lake and in the surrounding mountains. Right in front of the village is the small island of Martin, which you can reach by ferry.
Lunch, Dinner, Drinks
You will be pleasantly surprised to find pet-friendly restaurants, cafes and pubs in Ullapool. No need to leave your pup behind. All paws are of course welcome at The Seaforth.
“STOPPED HERE FOR LUNCH, BUT STARTED WITH A LOVELY FLAT WHITE BEFORE THE REST OF OUR PARTY JOINED US. THE STAFF WERE VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL, OUR LABRADOR WAS WELCOME SO WE ARE ALWAYS GRATEFUL FOR THAT. THERE IS LOADS OF ROOM BETWEEN TABLES SO SHE WAS ABLE TO LIE ON THE FLOOR BESIDE US AND NOT GET IN ANYONE’S WAY. WE SAT BY A VERY LOVELY ROARING FIRE, OUR SANDWICHES WERE SERVED WITH A GOOD SIDE SALAD AND MY BLT WAS CRAMMED WITH BACON, IT WAS VERY TASTY. THE PLATES OF FISH AND CHIPS PASSING US BY LOOKED ENORMOUS AND I SAW LOTS OF CLEAN PLATES, WE WILL DEFINITELY BE CALLING BACK FOR AN EVENING MEAL.”

MV Loch Seaforth
This magnificent ferry that’s going to Stornoway twice a day is practically on the doorsteps of The Seaforth. Built for the crossing between Ullapool and Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, MV Loch Seaforth, is designed to be a greener, quieter ferry. The Ferry offers a dog friendly area for you and your pup to relax and enjoy the views of the islands as they pass by. A must for all visitors
