The Owner Says

One of four pitches with Electric Hookup right in the middle of our lovely lochside campsite, with Little Loch Broom just beyond a small hillock. If you are booking for several tents/campervans, please book a pitch per unit, but feel free to pitch together when you arrive (aside from the four electic hook ups all other pitches are pitch-where-you-like. These pitches do not include fire pits, and the construction of fire pits on these pitches is strictly forbidden. You can, however, use a fire pit on a vacant pitch if there happens to be one when you are staying.

About Badrallach

Where the end of the road is the start of your adventure

The Owner Says

We are a remote Highland campsite, complete with holiday cottage and a simple bunkhouse that comfortably sleeps 12. If the weather or midges are terrible then the bunkhouse (we call it the bothy) is there to help you escape – often this is best with a dram on front of our wood-burning stove. We have toilet and shower facilities better than many larger campsites and different types of pitches for different tastes – either hide in the gorse or stay out in the open. We've even got four electric hook-ups!

You'll find some of the most stunning scenery in Britain here, be it the spectacular mountains, the ever-changing coastal weather painting dramatic colours everywhere, or the incredible diversity of wildlife, which, sadly, is rarely seen elsewhere in the UK. Little Loch Broom (it's not that little) is the sea loch we are situated upon and it is part of a wider MPA (marine protected area) for the unique life that resides within it. There are excellent boating opportunities on the loch on calmer days, and also opportunities for recreational fishing around the entire coast – just ask Chris the campsite attendant for some local, rugged Highlander knowledge. There is much to be made of the hill-walking (especially the foreboding yet beautiful An Teallach), fat-biking, trail running, hill-loch fishing with the small chance of ferox or arctic char (which we ask you to return as these are genetically distinct and isolated populations). It's also a very popular stop-off point for NC-500 travellers.

Our price range is lower than that of any managed campsite we know of and you'll find an abundance of peace and quiet whilst you're here.
