Enjoy outstanding panoramic views over Ullapool, Loch Broom and the sun setting over the Summer Isles from this well appointed house set on a south-facing hillside.

A spacious living area and extensive, conveniently laid out accommodation makes this suitable for large families, groups or several families. Dolphin is divided into a main house which sleeps 10 , and an adjoining self-contained flat which sleeps 4. They can be rented together or separately on a weekly basis.

Ullapool is roughly one mile away - a five minute drive or a 15 minute walk down a footpath with beautiful views. Sightseeing , walking , bird-watching , climbing and golfing are just some of many possible activities locally and Dolphin is a good base for touring in the NW Highlands.
View up Loch Broom from House
Our Dolphin House recommendation (after I think 8 holidays there at 2 yearly intervals!):
There are not many houses that fit 2 families so comfortably, or even 3 when we've had the flat as well. The house splits easily into 2 lots of 3 bedrooms. With the shared generous sized kitchen and the large living room with magnificent panoramic view and balcony over looking the loch, it's ideal for a large party. When we've had the attached flat as well, with another kitchen and living room and 2 bedrooms, we've found a wonderful combination for 3 families or one with grandparents and older children and friends.
It's within walking distance of Ullapool village centre with opportunities for young and old with swimming pool, tennis courts, museum, bars, ceilidhs and music events in the evenings and concerts at the McPhail Centre, not to forget the ferry terminal to the Western Isles! It's only a short drive to the wonderfully remote West coast sandy beaches and walks around peninsulas and headlands, a day trip to Cape Wrath the most Northern tip of Britain. No need even to drive: above Dolphin house the road leads onto the rough hillside with paths taking you to the top of Ullapool hill, then down to a remote glen or a hill walk into Ullapool. The view from just behind the house back down Loch Broom, and forward over Ullapool to the Summer Isles and the open sea must be one of the best in the Highlands - especially with the sun setting over the Summer Isles, watching the speck of the Stornaway ferry getting bigger as it approaches the harbour way below.

"I stayed in Dolphin House for two weeks this summer and am already planning my next trip. The house is wonderful with stunning views up and down Loch Broom which are especially beautiful at sunset. The house was spacious, clean and homely with excellent kitchen and showering facilities. The walk to Ullapool can be either a 10-minute pleasant walk down the Braes or a longer but more rewarding trip over the top of the adjacent hillside, perfect for a morning run to buy the paper! There are several enjoyable walks nearby, with more famous routes such as Stac Pollaidh and Cul Mor being a short drive away. Overall it was a fantastic experience, and I cannot recommend it enough!"
