Port á Mhinich is a unique and spectacularly situated property.
In its peaceful and secluded position, surrounded by mature trees it seems to perch above the sea. It is totally remote from the main road yet is only five minutes walk from Ullapool.
The remarkable views extend over the village and the busy port of Ullapool to the spectacular sunsets in the west and over the Summer Isles. A welcome and comfortable retreat after a hard day walking or sightseeing.

If you have to cancel for any reason, you must notify us in writing/by email. We will then make an attempt to re-let the property.

You will maintain the property and its contents in the clean and tidy condition you accept it at the start of your holiday. Any breakages must be paid in full.
