NearbyThe 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.
Badrallach is located at Badrallach Campsite, Bothy & Holiday Cottage, Croft 9, Badrallach, Dundonnell, Ross-shire IV23 2QP
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.
