Clean and comfortable room. Lesley is a great host. You must try the full breakfast. The local sausage and Dingwall black pudding are are rare treat. Would stay there again.

Stayed in a number of B&B's and guesthouses whilst touring Scotland and this was the best.
Beautiful location, very large room and wonderful breakfast. Even a decanter of sherry in the room.

We stayed at the Sheiling in August for one night:: we ere pleased to find a place in Ullappol not requiring a minimum stay of two nights in high season!
The B&B is just outside the beautiful Ullapool and the city center can be reached with a 10 minutes walk. We received a warm welcome from the owner (sorry, I don't remember her name) and the very friendly dog of the house.
Our room was on the first floor with sea view, spatious with modern forniture and a nice bathroom. In addition of all you need to prepare tea or coffee, scottish biscuits and sherry were available in the room.
The major plus of the house is the garden with direct access to the loch and splendid sea view and over Ullapool.
The breakfast was very nice and abundant.
An excellent choice if you're staying in Ullapool. we loved it

We stayed here for 1 night before getting the ferry to Stornaway the next morning. It is in a very convenient position, a few minutes drive to the ferry terminal, and about a 10 minute walk into town for restaurants, shops, etc. As others have said the accommodation is very clean and comfortable, though a little dated. The owner was very friendly and welcoming, and it was a bonus to be able to use the guest laundry, at very reasonable rates, before setting off for 10 days on the islands. Excellent breakfast, with lovely views over the loch.

Reviewed 28 June 2011

We reached the the Sheiling after a long drive across the far north and north-west of Scotland. We immediately felt welcome and continued to feel so. We are surprised by some reviewers' adverse comments about the proprietors' manner. We found them amiable and communicative.

Especially as we were only stopping one night, our room was adequate in size, well-stocked in every way, with a lovely view of Loch Broom. That view was enhanced by a post-breakfast stroll down the back garden to the water's edge, which we had been told on arrival that we were free to do.

The breakfast was nicely prepared and efficiently presented. At a price in the thirties per person per night with full breakfast as well as free sherry and sweeties, we are very glad we chose to stay here.
