Ah, politics and religion. I have to admit they are not my favourite subjects but for those who are interested in such things here are the links I could find to councillors, local politics and religious institutions in the area.
The Coigach Free Church in Achiltibuie. There is also a free church in Ullapool. Other denominations in Ullapool include the Scottish Episcopal Church, the Church of Scotland & the Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland.
The local Councillor for the region is Jean Urquhart, who I think established the Ceilidh Place in Ullapool – a great place to stay or eat. From what I have read about Councillor Urquhart she seems extremely hard working and well respected. She regularly attends meetings of the Coigach Community Council in the Achiltibuie Village Hall to discuss issues affecting the Coigach peninsular.
