This is the third time that I have stayed at Forest Way B&B and frankly I would not recommend anywhere else in the vicinity. Fantastic location for Ullapool and the mountains, Ian (the owner) is so helpful and friendly (and a great source of mountain knowledge for those looking to get outdoors), and the rooms are spotless. A real gem.... More

Two rooms for our family on the way up to catch the ferry to Lewis. Iain is a laid back host, the rooms really comfortable, and the breakfast just right. Coffee was, as we said at the time, brilliant. Friendly, affable, and of course we'll be back up next time we catch the ferry out. Particularly appreciated the shower after... More

We stayed at this B&B for 1 night and our stay could not have been more enjoyable! We went up to the Ullapool area to bagged a few munros and the location is excellent and Iain is very helpful! We will definitely return! Good cooked breakfast too!

The bunkhouse is a great little place centrally located for hillwalking in the Ullapool area. Iain is the host and he knows all about the hills in the local area and will be happy to share his knowledge of routes and trailheads with you. The bunkhouse has two sleeping areas on either side of the central kitchen/seating area. There are... More

We stayed at Ian's place for one night during our motor bike tour through Scotland. We very delighted to find a bunkhouse with two rooms (4 persons each) a well equiped kitchen and some sofa's to relax in. In the drying room we were able to put all our motor gear to be ready for the next trip. We would... More

If you are looking to explore the mountains and coastline around Ullapool, Forest Ways Bunkhouse is an ideal location if you are on a budget. We booked one night at short notice and had a really comfortable and cosy stay after a damp day in the mountains! There are 8 beds in two rooms at the bunkhouse which is situated... More

I wanted to climb some of the munros close to Ullapool and the Forest way ticked the boxes for a base. It is perfectly situated for the hills south of the village. The place itself is comfortable well equipped and clean. Iian the owner has thought about what walkers need and want and has provided exactly that. He is a... More

Great location for munros and much more. It is well equipped and very comfortable. Iain has experience of staying in other bunkhouses and understands what people need and expect. He is a great guy and nothing is too much trouble. If he could only sort the weather!! I will be back I have unfinished buisness!!!! 😀 😀😀😀😀😀

Three of us stayed a night here but wish it could have been longer. Iain the perfect host for those who love the outdoors (and what a great selection of books in the lounge!). The perfect stress-free with a stunning waterfall walk just 50 yards away. Kids will love feeding the rabbits. We'll be back :@)
