Ullapool slip is long and thin, especially for bigger boats (see below).

I've read you can launch from the shore with a 4x4? I've never launched from there myself. I pass through Ullapool on route to Lewis 2-3 times a year. Some serious depths around Ullapool, and perfect base for exploring the numerous islands, and fishing of course. Your best bet to launch would be Ardmair, north of Ullapool. Details here: Ullapool - Ardmair Point Holiday Centre - Luxury Self Catering holiday accommodation and holiday park

Also - previous thread on the area. Summer Isles / Ullapool 25th July Onwards

Fuel up before you get there... especially with your Yammie 300 horses! Petrol price in Ullapool is currently 1.44 a litre, and diesel 1.50
