The Ceilidh Place ('Inimitable Jean Urquhart's place which more than any other in the Highlands, encapsulates Scotland's traditional culture and interprets it in a contemporary manner' - Scotland the Best) is the social hub for the week. 


It began in 1970 as an old Ullapool boatshed where Robert and Jean Urquhart served modest refreshments accompanied by generous helpings of entertainment in the form of concerts, exhibitions, plays and poetry and conversation.  Since then, the Ceilidh Place has grown into a sophisticated hotel with  individual, cosy bedrooms.  Additionally, there are 'club rooms' - more modest but perfectly comfortable, just across the road..


In summer, the coffee shop serves meals all day long and there is an outdoor terrace for when the sun is shining.  The restaurant specialises in vegetarian cuisine and local seafood and the bar has a fine selection of malt whiskies and wines.


The Ceilidh Place offers Variations participants (and their partners) specially reduced rates so remember to quote 'Variations' when making your booking.
