My husband and I were excited to reach Ullapool on New Year's Day on our motorhome tour of Scotland. The town was very closed up - understandably - and only a few restaurants and pubs were open. We tried two but were turned away as one had run out of food and the other was running a gig that required... More

The Argyll Hotel has a cosy lounge bar,open to non residents. It was very quiet when we went for dinner but it was at the quietest time of year, in November. The dining area is warm and has a welcoming atmosphere. Service was prompt and friendly. We ordered vegetarian sausages and a vegetarian curry.The sausage meal was very good -... More

This is a good place for a cosy drink but offering streetside tables outside if there is some sun. There is sometimes a quiz on Thursday nights and on some nights live music and it's a popular watering hole. Bar staff can be offhand as we popped in to reserve our table in the afternoon for a Thursday night as... More

The Argyll is probably the coziest lounge bar in Ullapool. Quite old fashioned in its decor, but cozy nevertheless, a good place for an evening drink. The food is decent, and at a reasonable price as well.

Only dropped into The Argyll for a pint of the local ale and thought the bar area was your typical quiet Scottish bar. Colourful locals who were up for a laugh and a chat, and despite the Barman's gruff exterior, he was polite and no request was too small. Nice place, great local feel. Didn't order any food, but menu... More

We visited just for dinner one evening but found the lounge/dining area very pleasant. The adjoining bar is also very nice. We had fish & chips that were very nice. Will visit again next visit.

Room badly decorated, dated, had a step in the middle of room, light switch on wall was broken, TV remote control was cellotaped together, bathroom was... More

Went for supper. We dined in the pub lounge rather than the restaurant. It felt nice and homely. Food was good pub grub. We were a little surprised that they didn't have much fish on the menu, especially considering Ullapool and West Coast in particular are famous for fresh fish. Notwithstanding, we were well attended and the it was great,... More
