Set Sail Ullapool want to offer people the chance to experience Loch Broom, the Summer Isles and the rugged North West coastline on our 47ft sailing yacht 'Angel's Share'. We run sailing experiences based out of Ullapool for individuals and groups of friends. Each of our trips are different from the last giving us the chance to make everyone's voyage with us truly unique.
Ullapool is situated upon Loch Broom - which lies on the North Western coast of Scotland - where the rugged landscape is a renowned feature of this area. The rocks that make up this coastline are some of the oldest in the world and cast towering outlines above the sea around them.
The sea surrounding Ullapool, Loch Broom and the Summer Isles has a particularly rich biodiversity and as a result has been included in the designation of an NCMPA (Nature Conservation Marine Protected Area) - set up specifically to protect this plant and animal biodiversity. We are lucky to have such a naturally rich environment in which to explore. Because conservation and preservation of natural areas is so important to us, we will be exploring whilst keeping environmental impact to an absolute minimum.
It is possible to spot Seals, Porpoises, Dolphins, Basking Sharks and also various species of sea bird that depend on the richness of the ocean here for their survival.
Historically, Ullapool was established as a fishing port. Now, as well as still being a landing port for fishing vessels, it has become a busy little village that welcomes many tourists each year. It hosts many traditional music events and is well known for it's many artistic enterprises. It is one of the highlight stops on the NC500 route.
