Ullapool is a small harbour village of around 1500 people which serves as the centre for a large stretch of the North West coast of Scotland and is 60 miles north west of Inverness, where there is an airport and rail link.
Benefitting from The North Atlantic Drift, Ullapool is a popular tourist destination and fishing village with a busy ferry operating a roll-on/roll-off service to Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. It has a range of shops from the smallest right up to a well-stocked Tesco Superstore, a Post Office, a bank, a theatre and some good pubs and hostelries, including the Ceilidh Place (a local hotel, bunkhouse, café / bar, restaurant, bookshop & music venue); The Dipping Lugger for fine dining on the shore of Loch Broom. It's also worth noting that Ullapool has two local, independent, book stores.

Canna is a three-bedroom home on two floors forming part of a striking modern four dwelling eco-development, built in 1995. Situated on the eastern periphery of the attractive harbour village of Ullapool in the north west Highlands of Scotland, it overlooks Loch Broom.
The three-storey development was designed to nestle into the hillside; Canna occupies part of the first and second floors and its external front door is approached by a shared path at first floor level.
The front door opens into the hall that offers access to all rooms, as well as the spectacular open spiral staircase that leads to the upper floor. Throughout, the floors are slate and allied to the large windows enhance the overall brightness and space of this exceptional home. The large and comfortable living room has a box bay window that looks out towards Loch Broom and a further triple window, looking towards Ullapool, giving the space a dual aspect and bathing it in light. Due to its proportions, it can easily accommodate specific areas for both sitting and dining.
The kitchen adjoins the living area and therefore forms an integral part of it. The kitchen's focus is its large box bay window that encompasses a door to the private terrace that also looks across the Loch; it has a plethora of floor mounted units, offering great storage space, a full complement of integrated appliances and an island, large enough for four people to dine at.
There is a comfortable double bedroom with a battery of built-in wardrobes, ideally suited to be a guest room and a large partially tiled bathroom with a three-piece suite and a separate double cabinet shower; contained within the bathroom is a sauna. The entrance floor is completed by a utility/ laundry room that has an adjoining wc.
The upper floor has a naturally lit landing that is spacious enough to offer a work space, should it be desired. The master bedroom is windowed on three sides and east facing, benefits from the morning light; it also has two double doored built-in wardrobes. The naturally lit shower room has a three-piece suite and, finally, there is a third, smaller, bedroom.
There is a double car parking space and garden to the rear. Cana is double glazed and has a wet electric, under floor, heating system and the development has a green roof.
