Ullapool – Ullapool. Rounding Skye. Setting sail from Ullapool you will take your time exploring Skye, one of the Islands of the Hebrides. It has over 550 km of coastline: enough to explore and not even get to see everything! In springtime you will spot the first Otters coming out of their winterhiding. The Golden Eagles might be spotted, as well as some seals. This voyage will give you a combination of sailing and walking. Exploring villages or historic sites in the morning and then sailing on to the next bay. Open for all ages. Minimum age 15 years.

Programme Outline


Ullapool, despite its small size is the largest settlement for many miles around and a major tourist destination of Scotland. The village was founded in 1788 as a herring port by the British Fisheries Society. A few Cordyline australis or New Zealand cabbage trees are grown in the town and are often mistaken for palms. The harbour is still the edge of the village, used as a fishing port, yachting haven, and ferry port. Enjoy the beautiful surroundings here.
