What our visitors think about Ailleag

“The best house we have stayed in, having visited Ullapool for the past 12 years. Superb accommodation. Weather was quite wonderful. Highlight of the week was a 12 mile walk fromCam Loch to Suilvent to Lochinver – a winter wonderland of magical scenery.”

“We all love Ullapool – lovely town, spectacular views and great walking – but to stay in such a comfortable and well-equipped house and have such brilliant weather was the icing on the cake. Thanks very much. We shall be back for certain.”

“A superb house, well-equipped and very comfortable and also conveniently situated for the village and waterfront. The scenery all round is fantastic and dramatic and we have visited many of the recommended places. Lovely weather too.”
