Ullapool is 60 miles from Inverness, which has an airport, train and bus connections, and there is a good road through beautiful landscapes. The driving time is about 1 hour.
Craigmore is located on Shore Street, which is the main road along the waterfront. The house has no number, but a primrose-yellow door, two doors down from the Ferry Boat Inn. Google Maps is a little imprecise here, but it's a small village, and the house is easy to find.

Craigmore is a traditional whitehouse cottage built in the early 1900’s. It is situated in a row of similar old houses on Shore Street and overlooks Loch Broom.
This has been the family house for generations, I myself was brought up here, and so when we modernised it I felt a duty to do it well.
Times have changed so, to gain the best views we have made it an upside down house.
Upstairs is a large bright open plan space. The sitting area is beautifully furnished, and with the spectacular views over Loch Broom and the busy harbour filled with boats, and the wood burning stove, it is a wonderful retreat from the world.
The kitchen is fully equipped with ample seating for six.
Downstairs, on the ground floor, is a lovely, comfortable twin bedroom with a separate walk-in shower room with power shower and heated floor. Opposite is the snug: a cosy room for watching television or lounging with a book. There are board games, jigsaws and a game console; plenty to keep you occupied on a rainy day. By special arrangement, the sofa can be transformed into a double bed.
There is a second bedroom upstairs with an ensuite bathroom, and a small garden room with access onto a private terrace.
Ullapool is a busy village filled with pubs, cafés, galleries, shops and restaurants, and Craigmore is a comfortable relaxing retreat from the bustle, and warm and snug to come home to after a day spent in the great outdoors.
