Hillwalking around Ullapool

Explore the highest Waterfall in Scotland with 658 ft (200 m)

This rough walk takes you into the heart of Assynt’s rocky landscape, past pretty lochans and streams to reach the top of Britain’s highest waterfall, Eas a’ Chual Aluinn.

We start this walk in Inchnadampf and make our way past some amazing views alongside Lochs and mountains before we ascend onto an alpine-style pass.

We zig-zag a well-built path down before we make our way off-path to the highest waterfall in Scotland.

This is a linear route and we still have a long way along rough terrain towards Loch na Gainmhich before we can relax. A fantastic day ends with another impressive waterfall before driving back to Ullapool.

Walk details: 9.4 miles, 15 km – Ascent 840 m, Descent 700 m – Walking time 5 – 6 h

Ullapool Hill and Beinn Eilideach Loop

We begin this day by walking up onto Ullapool hill from Ullapool village, the views over the village and out to the summer isles are fantastic.

From the summit of 270 metres, we continue our route over fairly rough ground to Beinn Eilideach which stands at 559 metres high.

The summit treats us to wonderful views in all directions. There is a lochan near the top known locally as the infinity loch which is great for a quick dip on a warm day!

We return via a different route finding our way through some amazing crags to finally be back onto Ullapool hill footpath and make gradually make our way back to the village.

This all makes for a super day out over varied terrain!

Walk details: 8 miles, 13 km – Ascent 575 m, Descent 575 m – Walking time 5 h
