What to do and where to go

Badachro is a splendid centre for many outdoor activities.


Sea-fishing for haddock, whiting and mackerel is popular. There is also plenty of scope for fly fishing in the many fresh water lochs in the area.



Climbing and hill walking are very popular, from challenging peaks to easy rambles.     Cycling is a great, if energetic, way to get around the area and bikes can be hired locally.  

Information regarding local walks can be found at Gairloch and Torridon walks.

There is a large and excellent sheltered anchorage and half a dozen glorious beaches with safe bathing within a short distance of Badachro.



There are several good shops spread between Gairloch and Strath over on the far side of the loch, between 6 and 7 miles away. These include 3 good licensed grocers, an excellent butcher, a hardware store, a fishmonger who supplies local fresh fish, a newsagent and stationer, hairdresser, and several attractive gift shops. Several outlets provide packed lunches etc. There is a branch of the Bank of Scotland in Gairloch, a garage for petrol and repairs, and a chandlers located on the pier. There is also a comprehensive National Trust shop at Inverewe Gardens some 12 miles away. There are several hotels in the area with bars and restaurants, and Badachro has its own inn by the pier, a short stroll along the shoreline from Rose Cottage. Click here for more information.
