Why not take a boat trip from Gairloch pier (pictured here) and perhaps observe some of the local marine life such as porpoise or whales?

Or you can try your hand at sea angling. Watersports facilities are also available locally.

Badachro itself is a popular anchorage for yachts.

Fishermen too will never get bored here - thanks to the myriad of lochs, lochans and rivers. Permits are easily available.

Gairloch Pony Trekking Centre is one of the area's more recent and successful ventures. It caters for all abilities who wish to explore the countryside on horseback.

While in the area, you mustn't miss the opportunity to visit Inverewe Garden overlooking Poolewe (pictured above). Home to plants from all over the world, this National Trust property is open all year round.

The township of Gairloch (pictured below) offers shops, hotels, restaurants, a museum and a leisure centre. A small swimming pool can be found in Poolewe just a few miles further on.

Badachro is an ideal centre for touring the striking unspoilt areas of Wester Ross and Sutherland including the North Coast 500 route which is becoming increasingly popular.
Day trips can also easily be made to the Isle of Skye and Eilean Donan Castle, as well as scenic west coast villages such as Plockton, Shieldaig and Torridon.

Our self-catering properties are close to Badachro Inn which is a friendly place to meet the locals and enjoy a meal.
