I hadn't read all the reviews until it was my last night here, and I agree wholeheartedly with them all. We have had a short but wonderful stay here. It is a fantastic base for walkers or people that want to sit and gaze out of the window at the loch. You can star gaze outside the back door, gaze at the fire or relax in a really deep bath. This is our 5th self catering accommodation in five weeks and it is completely superior to any that we have been in, in terms of friedliness, facilities, location and comfort. Thank you so much for letting us stay here!

A wonderful cottage set in magnificent surroundings. The views from the living room and kitchen windows are stunning.The cottage is in an excellent location on the edge of lochbroom but only a 10 min walk into the village. There is so much to explore in the NW highlands and the cottage is an excellent base to come back too. The cottage is very well equipped and has lovely log burning store to keep you cosy. Would definitely recommend.

The accommodation is remarkable spacious for a 1 bedroom property and is situated on the shores of Loch Broom and has a beautiful outlook over stunning scenary. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and well equipped, and the owners are on hand if anything needs sorting out, but do not intrude. Ullapool is a delightful small port with a good selection of pubs and restaurants and is well placed for exploring the beautiful yet largely empty Scottish mountain countryside which surrounds it, and is only about 55 miles ( about 75 minutes) from Inverness if the need for a city should be required. The only drawback is the west coast does get more rain than the east.

It is a 5 minute walk to the centre of Ullapool.

Kate always puts a jar of blackcurrant jam in the kitchen. Taste it, it's so good!!!

This was our second visit. We returned for the view and the comfort of the cottage. The view over the Loch is just amazing.

You will not find a kinder and welcoming couple then Kate & Paul. They greeted us as old friends, they made it o so more special.

Kate will have some of her own made blackcurrant jam in the cottage for you to try. DO!! It's so good!!

It is a 5 min. walk to the town. So that's good.

It is a great cottage with all the comforts you need and a awesome view to boot!

Cottage Review:  

This was our second visit to Rubha Mor, and we are planning a third visit next year in this outstanding cottage. The furnishings are very good. The kitchen is well equipped and offers everything you need.

And when something is missing: Kate and Paul - the friendly hosts - will get it for you. Beds and bath are good. The cottage’s special quality: The location is extraordinary, located on the shore of Loch Broom in a beautiful, lovely designed "wild" garden with direct access to the shore of Loch Broom. It offers nice views to the loch and different places to sit and to enjoy the surroundings. And incase the weather is not good enough to be outside, the cottage is wonderful to relax in! Because of the great windows in the living room and the kitchen you feel like being outside. And if it becomes cold outside, not only the underfloor heating will warm you but there is a fireplace too. The surroundings offer a stunning landscape for hiking. Starting directly from Ullapool or a short distance away by car you can reach Stac Pollaidh, Cul Mor, An Telleach, Suilven and others. The peaks offer outstanding views to the Summer Isles, lochs and the sea.

----

Dieses Jahr waren wir das zweite Mal in Rubha Mor, und wir planen schon unseren dritten Besuch in diesem außergewöhnlichen Cottage. Die Einrichtung ist sehr gut. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet und bietet alles, was man braucht. Und wenn etwas fehlt: Kate und Paul, die freundlichen Vermieter besorgen es umgehend. Betten und das Badezimmer sind gut.

Das hervorstechende Merkmal des Cottage: Die Lage ist außergewöhnlich. Es liegt am Ufer des Loch Broom in einem wunderschönen und liebevoll angelegten “wilden” Garten mit direktem Zugang zum Wasser. Der Garten bietet schöne Blicke auf den Fjord und es gibt verschiedene Plätze, an denen man es sich gemütlich machen und die Landschaft genießen kann.

Und sollte das Wetter mal nicht so gut sein, lässt es sich auch sehr gut im Cottage aushalten: Wegen der großen Fenster im Wohnzimmer und in der Küche ist es auch drinnen so, als wäre man draußen. Und sollte es mal kälter werden, lässt sich nicht nur eine Fußbodenheizung nutzen, sondern auch noch ein Kamin, inklusive Holz zum Befeuern.

Die Umgebung des Cottage ist grandios zum Wandern: direkt von Ullapool aus; in vertretbarer Fahrzeit erreicht man mit dem Auto Stac Pollaidh, Cul Mor, An Teallach und andere Berge der Umgebung. Die Gipfel bieten tolle Blicke auf die Summer Isles, Seen und das Meer.

The property is superbly positioned overlooking Loch Broom and with direct access to the lochside, from where you can walk into Ullapool if you wish. Excellently equipped and furnished and the owners are on hand to provide all the local advice you can possibly need but are not at all intrusive. An ideal holiday cottage.

We don't normally write accommodation reviews,but this place deserves it. Great accommodation, fully equipped,comfortable, warm with great views and a lovely garden which has easy access to lake Broom. Ideal for kayaking or having a short walk along shore into Ullapool. We used it as a base for walking and touring the local area, great mountains close by for walks and coastal areas for exploring. Can definitely recommend this accommodation.

Lovely cottage with fantastic views. Best equipped cottage we've ever been to. Loads of information about the area. The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable about wildlife and Ullapool. Drying cupboard, plenty of wardrobe place, hangers and towels. You don't need to bring all the bits and bobs because they are alrady there, like clingfilm and a hair dryer. There's even a medicine cabinet complete with tick tweezers!

Our second visit to Rubha Mor. Perfect base for exploring the local area. A very well equipped property, a real home from home. Warm, comfy and homely. We made good use of the wonderful drying cupboard after being caught in a heavy snow shower. Stunning view from the lounge window enabling us to watch numerous seabirds and deer on the hills opposite. We will return.

This property is home from home in terms of equipment, furniture and comfort. The views are breathtaking and a serious distraction from reading and TV! It is within walking distance from the delightful Ullapool and well placed as a base for exploration of the beautiful North West. The owners are friendly, helpful and generous in every way. Enjoy the locally made shortbread and home made jam which is provided as a welcome.

Rubha Mor is an absolut perfect place to visit the Far North-West of Scotland. The accommodation itself is a very comfortable apartment on one level and contains all what you need: fully equipped kitchen (even with tableware for nearly ten people - so you do not have to clean it up everyday); very cosy living-room to relax in and enjoy the fantastic view over Loch Broom (you can see it from all the windows); comfy beds and a spacious bathroom. Many suggestions and maps for walks and excursions are

provided, both for Ullapool itself as well as the whole area. But the best Extra for us were Kate and Paul itself. Very friendly, uncomplicated and helpful with many tips.

Definitely a place we would highly recommend.

A beautiful, cozy cottage in a prime location with stunning views over Loch Broom. Excellently equipped in kitchen, living room, bed- and bathroom. A perfect starting point to discover the north-western Scotland. We spent a week in Rubha Mor and had with Kate and Paul the best hosts you can imagine. A great time at a great place.

This cottage was perfect for our stay in Scotland; it really felt homely especially with the log burner on at night time. The views from the cottage are breath taking and we both enjoyed walking to the pub along the beach in the evenings. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting to stay in Ullapool.

Perfect base for exploring the North West Highlands and walks into Ullapool, especially directly from the garden along the shore.

I stayed in Rubha Mor on 3 different occasions and fully intend to stay again in the future as everything about it is first class. the flat is warm, comfortable, really well equipped - lots of cooking dishes and utensils, kitchen cupboards include spices, etc. The layout is excellent, with a lovely living area that has a windows along 2 walls allowing both lots of light into the area and magnificent views of Loch Broom, hills and mountains as well as Ullapool and the ferry coming in and out. Outside the kitchen area is a small veranda that visitors can sit on and enjoy the views and good weather. The location is perfect, easy walking distance into Ullapool, sitting on the loch side. The bathroom and bedrooms are well equipped with really comfortable beds that can be made up as either 2 singles or one double. Lots of towels and bedding available. As if all this is not enough the owners are warm, friendly, informative and helpful in every way. The flat also has a very practical drying cupboard and a wood burning stove that is easy to use and provides great heat on a wet, cold day. Thoroughly recommend, best self catering I've ever used.

Make up of party:  On 2 occasions I shared the accommodation with a frien and on the third occasion I stayed on my own for an extended stay whilst attending a course.

Our first stay at Rubha Mor was in 2008, we returned in 2013 and we will be back again in the future. The location is marvelous, Ullapool is a wonderful community, and Rubha Mor is the icing on the cake. We have stayed in a number of self-catering cottages in our 6 holidays in Scotland over the years, and this is by far our favorite. Very comfortable bed, terrific kitchen with all the cookware you need for full meals, and sitting in the living room overlooking Loch Broom and the surrounding hills can't be beat! The worst part about Rubha Mor is leaving.
