About the local area

The small hamlet of Letters lies along the west side of stunningly beautiful Loch Broom and is 9 miles from Ullapool, a cosmopolitan, vibrant holiday village situated on the west coast, with busy ferry terminal serving the Outer Isles. There are no shortage of pubs and restaurants here and family fare can be had throughout. Dominated by the sea, one of the local delicacies is the freshly caught seafood that arrives daily in the harbour. In the summer, the harbour comes alive with boat trips out to the Summer Isles, just three miles off shore, from where sea birds, dolphins, porpoises and otters can be observed in their natural habitat.
There are numerous activities available in the area. Ullapool has its own nine hole golf course on the shores of Loch Broom and there are a number of other courses within a short drive. For fishing enthusiasts there are many hill lochs in this area that are abundant with wild brown trout. Some, such as Loch Cam, even have arctic char which have been landlocked from the ice age. You can also fish for mackerel from Ullapool harbour and Loch Broom. For the more adventurous boats can be hired for sea fishing. Permits are available for salmon and trout fishing on local lochs and rivers.
Situated right on the edge of one of the most dramatic and awe inspiring regions in the Highlands, recently afforded "Geopark" status and now the largest geo park in Europe, walkers, climbers are spoilt for choice. Here majestic mountains interspersed with pretty lochs make this a climber’s and hill walker’s paradise. One of the most famous being Stack Polly but there are also plenty of others to choose from for committed hill walkers and climbers. The nearby coastal area of North West Scotland is renowned for its pristine sandy beaches, ancient settlements and incredible sandstone mountains. On a trip through the West Coast visitors pass through an area known as Assynt. Here visitors can explore the Bone Caves (a series of caves and tunnels which have recently been found to contain bones and fossils of long extinct animals, dating back over 4500 years) and the ruins of Ardvreck Castle perched on the edge of Loch Assynt, before arriving in the pretty fishing port of Lochinver. The nearby white shell beach of Achmelvich is simply stunning. Canoeing, sailing, body boarding, golf, fishing (sea, river and loch), horse riding, mountain biking, climbing and hill walking are all enjoyed in the ares. The Highlands ’capital’ of Inverness is one hour’s drive away from the Ullapool area and offers a wide range of attractions to suit all ages and tastes.
