Granulites and Granulites 2018 - Accommodation

Delegates will need to arrange and pay for their own accommodation. However, should you be interested in a budget option, we have struck a deal with the Caledonian Hotel (https://www.bespokehotels.com/caledonianhotel).

The hotel has reserved 76 rooms, including a mix of single, twin and double rooms. The price is £33.50 per person per night bed & breakfast and £43.50 per person per night DBB for shared twins/doubles and single rooms, with a £20 surcharge for sole occupancy of twin or double. These prices are significantly reduced, but come with the caveat of a 28 days cancellation policy. This offer expires on 01/06/2018.

To take up this offer, contact the hotel direct by email generalmanager.caledonian@bespokehotels.com (note that the hotel is closed for the winter so it may take some days before you receive a response). MAKE SURE to quote the reservation number: Granulites Conference 2018: ref 2805.

There are several alternatives for accommodation, including hotels, bed & breakfasts and self-catering. Good places to start are here and here. If self-catering, there is a moderately large Tesco supermarket in the town, along with almost everything else (e.g. pharmacy, outdoor stores, etc.) you might need.

Note however that July is the peak season and Ullapool is a popular tourist destination, so book early to avoid disappointment.
