Ullapool has been named as the No.1 most beautiful village in all of the UK, by Big 7 Travel.

To curate the list, Big 7 Travel asked UK travel photographers to vote for which village they thought was the most beautiful in all the land.

The list showcases the Top 20 Most Beautiful Villages – and while Scotland only makes an appearance four times, the Highland village known to be a jewel in the crown of Wester Ross tops the entire list.

Although once best known for fishing, Ullapool now finds much of the local economy relying on tourism – particularly with the increasing popularity of the North Coast 500 route around the Highlands.

Tourism proves to be highly beneficial, if not essential, part of life in Ullapool, but that doesn't mean the negative impacts of a boom in tourism go unacknowledged.

Many local environmentalist groups, particularly the Ullapool Sea Savers,give their best efforts to keep the Wester Ross village and its wildlife beautiful.
