Built in the early 1900s, the Caledonian Hotel is one of the oldest hotels in the area. It still boasts a quiet, friendly and welcoming atmosphere and pleasant gardens.
The Hotel overlooks Ullapool’s working harbour and the colourful fishing boats on Loch Broom. To the right of the hotel is the Fowler Memorial Clock – said to be the most photographed clock in the Highlands. It was first erected in 1899 in memory of Sir John Arthur Fowler (1817-1898) and his family who lived at Braemore House near Corrieshalloch Gorge. However, to help reduce traffic congestion, it was moved to its new home in West Argyle Street in the 1960s.
There are 83 guest bedrooms in the Caledonian Hotel, with a good mix of single, double and twin suites. Cots are available upon request.
With views of the Hotel gardens, the Mackenzie Restaurant offers a wide selection of traditional Scottish dishes, freshly cooked using local, seasonal ingredients. The Caledonian Lounge epitomises the relaxed pace of life in the Highlands. With its coal-burning fire and views of the harbour, it’s the perfect place to enjoy morning and afternoon teas. It even hosts traditional Scottish entertainment three evenings a week.
The Caledonian Hotel has flexible meeting space for business functions for up to 100 delegates. Friendly and professional staff will help you to plan your meeting, conference or business function and will ensure that everything runs smoothly on the day. Day and 24-hour delegate rates are available.
The Caledonian Hotel is in the heart of Ullapool, close to a vast array of shops, bars and live entertainment venues. The town is an ideal base from which to explore the Scottish Highlands.
For those who love the great outdoors, there are plenty of activities on offer, from sea and loch fishing, to deer stalking. For a day trip, guests can order a packed lunch from the Hotel and take a ferry over to the picturesque Isle of Lewis. A ferry departs from Ullapool for Stornoway twice daily.
