You will be able to find more information underneath each walk on this ‘Boat and Walk around Ullapool’ page. A popup window will open up with more info, availability, price and times when we run this walk.
We are offering some fantastic 1-day walking adventures. Ideal for those wanting to get out into the hills around Ullapool and further afield with a qualified mountain leader providing a safe and fun day out.
Included is transport from Ullapool with meeting at 10 am at the Royal Hotel Ullapool car park. We offer another meeting point at the start of the walk for some walks. A lot of our walks are linear therefore two vehicles are a must with two drivers. We offer this and this is planned into our pricing.
Scoraig wander and boat return journey
This walk to the off-grid village of Scoraig is not only a beautiful coastal walk, but also offers an insight into the interesting and inspiring history and people of Scoraig.
We begin the day with the lovely scenic drive to just before Badrallach where the road ends and we begin our walk along the delightful coastal path with stunning views to eventually reach Scoraig.
After spending some time exploring the village, weather permitting, we take a short boat journey from the pier back to Ullapool.
We may also be lucky enough to spot some marine wildlife on our boat journey.
Walk details: 9 miles, 14.5 km – Ascent 130 m, Descent 280 m – Walking time 4 h
Boat over to Rubha Camas a´Mhaoraich and ascent Beinn Ghoblach
After a pleasant short boat trip from Ullapool to Rubha Camas, we begin our ascent of Beinn Ghoblach on the Scoraig peninsula.
Though it is a relatively modest hill in height with the summit standing at 635 metres, it looks and feels like a real mountain and the summit peak offers fantastic views.
We descend down to a track that hugs the coastline of Little Loch Broom and follow this to the tiny village of Badrallach from where we enjoy a pleasant scenic drive back to Ullapool.
Walk details: 7.0 miles, 11.5 km – Ascent 650 m, Descent 650 m – Walking time 4.5 h
Walk the Scoraig Peninsula to Scoraig
Our day begins with a lovely short boat ride from Ullapool to Annat bay on the Scoraig Peninsula.
From here our walk takes us up onto and around the lovely cliff tops hugging the peninsula to eventually reach the interesting off-grid village of Scoraig. This village can only be reached by foot or boat and is home to around 70 people.
There is a small museum converted from a lighthouse which gives a fascinating insight into the history and people of this inspiring community.
After enjoying the tranquillity of Scoraig we take the short boat journey over to Badluarach and have a lovely drive back in our van.
Walk details: 7.0 miles, 11.5 km – Ascent 300 m, Descent 250 m – Walking time 3.5 – 4 h
