Summer Isles Hotel

Achiltibuie, Ullapool, Ross & Cromarty IV26 2YQ

Business Details

The Summer Isles Hotel is beautifully situated above the sea with stunning views and is a warm, friendly and well furnished hotel with an excellent bar and restaurant.

The Summer Isles Hotel is renowned as an oasis of civilisation tucked away in the vast, natural and ruggedly beautiful landscape of the Western Scottish Highlands. The hotel is a favourite destination for food lovers, outdoor adventurers and for those looking for peace, tranquillity and fresh air.

In the restaurant and bar, we showcase primarily seafood and fish in all its diversity, from “magnificently simple” to “creative and refined”. This is done in the most sustainable way possible through loyalty and commitment to the local waters and grounds of The Coigach Peninsula.

The North Atlantic Current helps to warm the climate but the weather can be anything from Arctic to Aegean inside a week! It’s best to be prepared so may we suggest that you pack everything from tee shirts to waterproofs and sun cream to bobble-hat!

Nine of our bedrooms have utterly beautiful views over the sea and across to the Summer Isles with the hills of Wester Ross in the background. We have four non-sea view rooms which are all comfy and spacious. Three are in our eco log cabin which is a few metres only from the main building and the fourth is situated at the rear of the main building.

All rooms have flat screen TV's and Wi-Fi access. Ten of our bedrooms are dog friendly with bowls and rugs provided upon arrival.

The hotel is fortunate to have two restaurants: the bar and the restaurant. The bar, with its bustling character, serves comforting and fresh food at lunchtime, while in the evenings our guests can enjoy the dinner menu in both the restaurant and the bar, showcasing predominantly seafood in all its diversity, from “magnificently simple” to “creative and refined”. Both our lunch and dinner menus change every month and there are Chef’s Specials that change every day, based on what our local fishermen supply us with.

Access to glorious local produce is the reason that we focus on seafood although meat, vegetables and fruit (especially when these are locally produced) will feature. There are vegan menus and children’s menus in both the restaurant and the bar.

The bar is well stocked with beers and lagers on draught and a fine range of local gins and whiskies. Wines are supplied by Corney and Barrow which means that our guests should be able to find something a little different during their visit to the Highlands.

Despite its remoteness, or perhaps because of it, Achiltibuie provides a remarkable number of activities and things to do.

The area is a walker’s paradise with a significant number of Munros within striking distance. You are never far from the sea which provides not only cliffs to walk on and beaches to explore but can also delight the sea-kayaker and the the photographer.
