Ullapool has a strong reputation as a centre for music, the arts and performance. The town boasts a small award winning museum housed in a Telford Church, An Talla Solais an arts centre with frequently changing exhibitions and workshops, a swimming pool and fitness centre, and several pubs (including the Arch Inn on the shores of Loch Broom, Argyll), bed and breakfasts (including Riverview, Eilean Donan Guesthouse, Spindrift, and Broombank), restaurants and hotels. It is a centre for walkers, wildlife enthusiasts and other holidaymakers and is situated in a spectacular and remote part of the United Kingdom. In May every year there is the three day Ullapool Book Festival which attracts a diverse range of writers and with work in both Scottish Gaelic and English. There is also The Macphail Centre which has a theatre hosting a regular programme of musical, dance and theatrical performances, many by the Scottish national companies but some work from smaller reps and travelling Edinburgh Fringe performers. Often the sheer number of performances in any week will mean there is overspill to the Village Hall and other venues.
