Standing in its own private grounds with spectacular views over Lochbroom and Ullapool, Lochbroom Lodge offers high quality accommodation for up to 20 people. Behind the house is privately owned hill ground where you can see red deer and watch birds of prey. The front of the property has a fabulous vantage point from which to watch the local fishing boats heading to and from the harbour and in the summer, cruise ships and visiting yachts on the beautiful Lochbroom.

Lochbroom is a fjord (known in Scotland as a sea loch) and is deep enough for the large ferry, The Isle of Lewis, to sail out to the Western Isles making for an interesting sight as it steams past the front of Lochbroom Lodge. Across the loch stand the mountains of Ben Ghoblach and An Teallach, great to look out on and wonderful for hill walkers and climbers. To the east of the lodge is the village of Ullapool with its busy harbour and nine hole golf course. To the west you look out over the mouth of the loch towards The Summer Isles and can watch the spectacular sunsets.

Ullapool is only a mile away from the Lodge with its fishing boats which land fresh prawns and lobsters. The harbour is within sight of the busy seafront which has shops, bars and restaurants. It is possible to take a leisurely stroll along the shore and be in Ullapool in about 20 minutes. On the way you pass the golfers who are playing the 3rd hole and maybe some anglers who are fishing for salmon at the mouth of the Ullapool river, once you are over the wooden bridges then you are almost there. Alternatively you can walk along the shore towards the Rhue Lighthouse or perhaps enjoy a picnic or barbeque.
