Ullapool Book Festival is an intimate and welcoming literary festival on the shores of Loch Broom in the Highlands of Scotland that has completed its eleventh year. Please take a browse about our site for information on who has or will be attending and when and where it happens. We hope to hear from you and see you at the next festival – 6 to 8 May 2016.
“The Ullapool Book Festival has long been a highlight on my calendar. It is a truly international, truly local weekend.. Readers can meet bestselling authors whose books they may have followed for years and discover new favourites that might otherwise have eluded them. Whatever the weather, the welcome is always warm, the level of debate high and the home baking superlative. If I had to sum up the festival in two words I would say, Variety and Quality.”
Louise Welsh, UBF honorary president
