  • Sleeps 6 (max 6 adults, 5 children)
Camping pitch on our lovely lochside campsite suitable for tents, cars & small campervans.

The Owner Says

Take your pick of available grass pitches at our lovely lochside campsite – Little Loch Broom is just beyond a small hillock. We do not assign particular pitch numbers for bookings made online, so when you arrive please take an available pitch. Some of our pitches have fire pits - availability of fire pits is on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are booking for several tents, please book a pitch per unit, but feel free to pitch together when you arrive!  If you require a pitch with an electric hookup, please select one of our four pitches with electric hookup, if available.

About Badrallach

Suitable For

Tents, groups, dogs – yes. Caravans and campervans (max 3 at any one time; max length 6m) – yes. Caravans must be towed by four-wheel-drive vehicles.

Nearby

The site is a great place for walking, climbing and kayaking (no fee for launching if you bring one) – there is a colony of seals living just a quick paddle away, often dozing on the rocks or popping up for a peak. Corrieshalloch Gorge is a spectacular chasm that you can reach easily by road (20 minutes). There’s also An Teallach (8 miles away) – ‘Scotland’s finest ridge walk’ and including 2 Munros – the 635-metre Beinn Ghobhlach just behind the campsite, and a beautiful 5-mile loch-side stroll to the roadless off-grid community of Scoraig. Much further afield, Gairloch Marine Life Centre (40 miles; 01445 712636) sees visitors join an expert marine biologist on a 2-hour cruise to spot porpoises, whales, dolphins and basking sharks.

Food & Drink

The Dundonnell Hotel (01854 633204; nr Dundonnell; 7½ miles) has a restaurant and also does fine bar meals with frequent live music – choose either the Cocktail or the Broombeg Bar. If you’re prepared to head further afield, the Frigate Café (01854 612969) in Ullapool is a classy continental bistro that seems to have got lost and turned up in the far north-west of Scotland. It has a great little kids’ area and a backroom where you can hide from the weather with a hot chocolate.

Tranquil and with nature

Having negotiated the track, sheep and cows the scenery well worth the trip. We live in Scotland but have not seen nearly enough so an adventure here was the sun. Badrallach was great. Met lovely people from all over Europe. Showers and facilities great. Midges are a nightmare so be prepared and would recommend buying wood for campfires and ensure lots of smoke as keeps them away. The path to Scoraig is stunning ensure good walking boots shoes are worn as path can be tricky if wet and watch for cows on path they were not for moooving! Seal did pop up for a look! Lovely cafe when near end of track signposted at start of walk and about 4.5 miles in. Visited Torridon which we love and have been before. Recommend plan all trips ahead as no Wi-fi in many spots. Ullapool and the Frigate cafe lovely coffee and cake. Nearest petrol is also Ullapool so again plan ahead. Great holiday and thanks for being so beautiful and welcoming loved it despite the midges!

Well worth a visit

Just had a marvellous week at this truly wonderful and magical wee haven. The owners were fantastic and very helpful. Met some lovely people and our little girl had a ball playing with her new friends in the bothy. Very reasonably priced week and with hookup for glampers. Our two dogs were made very welcome, they really enjoyed playing down by the Loch. If you want peace and quiet this is the place for you.  Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful place.

Magical!

As Phil and Kirsty say "Location, location, location".  It hits the spot, more than!  Beautiful, peaceful with an otherworldly atmosphere.  Enter a more gentle, less frantic, and "what day is it" mode.  We spent 8 nights here in a tent.  I wish it was 8 more and then some.  Lovely pitches amongst the gorse, giving shelter and privacy, and plenty of room if you have a bigger tent.  Fresh, naturally filtered spring water from the hills on tap (my skin has never looked so good!)  Showers powerful with piping hot water 24/7 and toilets spotless.  Brilliant set up includes a cosy bothy, with log burner,  which all campers can use if not exclusively booked out (notice is given in advance).  With reference to  previous reviews would like to add re midgies - it is Scotland (there's no many places without them)!!!; re wind - it is Scotland and the Atlantic Coast; re rain - it is Scotland and the Atlantic Coast!! Scotland is an island ie 4 seasons in a day and uncontrollable!!!   D'oh!!!

It is beautiful, peaceful and far from the" madding, camping", crowd which makes it all worthwhile!! We had a wonderful time here and will be back!  Thank you!

tranquil and perfect

We, (my husband and 2 pre-schoolers ageed 3 and 4) came up here on a spur of the moment decision, just for a night! Madness I know! was sooooo worth the drive, had a brilliant time, just a bit of a trek to the beach, which with 2 little ones can be a daunting experience, would come back in a heart beat, the facilities are second to none, the best I have come across whilst camping!!!

Badrallach amazing

We stayed at Badrallach for 3 nts. Campsite is very basic, but exactly what we were after. Clean toilet blocks, showers and a small kitchen area inside the block. There's also the cutest little bothy house which can be booked. Campsite is pretty exposed and our gazeebo blew away (we needed it the night before as the rain was terrible!) so we had to collect those bits the following morning. I would stay here again, we had a great time with friends :) p.s. bring midgie spray!

Getting There

Take the A9 north from Inverness on to the A835 to Ullapool. Approximately 10 miles from Ullapool at Braemore Junction turn left on to the A832 for 10 miles then turn right on to the single-track Badrallach road for approximately 7 miles.

The Westerbus (01445 712255) Gairloch–Inverness–Gairloch passes the road end (approx 7 miles from the site). There is no bus-stop sign, so please wait at the junction and make sure you can be seen. The bus toward Inverness passes the road end at 08:50 on a Monday, Wednesday and Saturday, and travels back from Inverness on the same days at 17:20 arriving at the road end just before 19:00. Please make sure you give yourself plenty of time to walk in either direction as the road to and from the campsite is not flat or straight and can be very exposed in places. Do not walk this path if you are not at a good level of physical fitness.
