Some background? The first Ullapool Book Festival was held in May 2005. It was founded by a group of literary enthusiasts in Ullapool Entertainments, the local voluntary arts organisation founded in 1982. The aim is to run an annual book festival the purpose of which is to promote and encourage the study, appreciation and knowledge of literature in Ullapool and the surrounding district.

The festival includes work written in Gaelic and Scots. There is a strong Gaelic element bearing in mind the local heritage and the fact that there are many Gaelic learners in the area as well as native speakers - literature has a significant place in Highland culture and life. The book festival is not just a showcase for Highland writers but also for writers from other parts of Scotland, and indeed the world, to come and create an inspirational atmosphere.
