Driving from Ullapool to Gairloch you’ll be approaching the end of your NC500 trip. But that’s only if you’re following our North Coast 500 Alternative route, of course. If you’re heading the opposite way then you’re only at the beginning. Lucky you!
There are certainly things to do around Ullapool, but let’s just say that, like us, at this stage on your road trip you may have become a little spoilt. Ullapool itself is far from the most inspiring place on any North Coast 500 route, but it’s still an incredibly useful pit stop. Thankfully, there’s a plethora of thunderous waterfalls, gorgeous bays and towering hills to ogle at in the surrounding area. A brilliant range of Grahams, Donalds and Munros also means that there’s hiking for visitors of every level.
