I was so pleased to finally arrive on the island. All my life I've wanted to visit the outer Hebrides. The harbour is in Center of town. Drive off the ferry and you're in town. Very convenient.

This is a real if small working port and the compact older harbor and the adjacent larger new harbor areas frame a small peninsula of the historic waterfront. Pleasant and with a variety of pubs and eating venues.
Caught ferry from here to return to Ullapool after a week touring the islands. Gorgeous sunny day showed the harbour off at its best. Great views, saw a seal lazily floating near the pier. Close to town centre makes it easy to access.
For the best views go across to Lews Castle on the opposite side - and call in to the Castle museum and the tearoom whilst you're there. Active working harbour. Watch the fishing boats unload their catch.
