Autumn in Ullapool
We love sharing our insider knowledge on what to do when visiting our beautiful Village.
Here are just a few to get you excited.
Please ask our lovely staff for more adventures and places to see this Autumn.
Just a short walk from The Seaforth you will find Ullapool Hill, this beautiful
Hill still takes our breath away literally and figuratively speaking. This short
but steep ascent reveals superb views over Loch Broom and Ullapool. The
highest point is the outcrop of Meall Mor with views inland of Loch Achall
and surrounding countryside. The walk is particularly beautiful in the autumn
when the heather is in a purple blaze.
About 18 minutes drive from The Seaforth you will find Lael Forest. An easy
and pleasant walk with around 200 different tree species together with a
longer plantation section with waterfalls. Clear woodland paths and tracks with
some ascent/descent, the latter with steps.
For a more challenging hike:
Just a short 30 or so minutes drive from The Seaforth you will find this
beautiful and popular limestone valley of the Allt nan Uamh (Burn of the
Caves) to the famous Bone Caves. This walk definitely works up an appetite
so make sure to get back in time for lunch at the Seaforth. Bone caves have a
clear path that is rough, narrow, and steep at times near the caves and need
you to take great caution when climbing. The insides of the caves themselves
can be wet and slippery.
Test your head for heights on the bridge and new viewing platform over the
dramatic gorge while the water surges many meters below your feet. The
surrounding walk has spectacular views of waterfalls and the open countryside
towards Loch Broom.
