About the location

AULTBEA

Ullapool 44 miles; Dingwall 65 miles; Inverness 76 miles.

From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

It is a small village with a small harbour at Aird Point, from which you can enjoy boat-trips around the sandy and rocky coast. Aultbea has two churches, a shop, a butcher's, 2 hotels and a local craft shop. The village also plays host to a N.A.T.O base. Large ships often come inshore to refuel here and you can occassionally see warships in the Loch. Aultbea has an annual "fun day" where most people from the village turn up and play football or socialise over a homebaked scone. Nearby you can enjoy the spectacle ofthe famous Intervewe Gardens, a sub-tropical arboretum that is open throughout the year. This part of Scotland is perfect for those who want to explore the country's history and experience the abundance of natural beauty that it offers.
