Accommodation services at Badrallach, North West Scotland
Badrallach ...a tranquil place

No mains water exists here but a tasty and pure, sometimes peaty coloured, filtered and sterilised hill supply is piped into the buildings for your enjoyment and tested regularly. It may freeze occasionally in hard winters or be in short supply in hot summers but that's life here.


Electricity too only arrived here in 2002 and in 2020 the cottage was finally converted from gas lights as the technology became unsustainable. We kept the historic fittings though! Wood stoves are still used predominantly in all of our accommodation with a recent new installation in the cottageMobile signals can be poor in the buildings, but in general coverage is getting better.


A public telephone is located beside the campsite, but needs a bit of TLC from BT!

Essential Serivces

Petrol stations are few and far between so stocking up in Gairloch, Laide or Ullapool is useful, these being the nearest places. We don't have any shops nearby either - please make sure you bring your supplies fro teh aforementioned places or beyond!

Winter Travel

During the winter time, the single-track road leading to the campsite can become iced over. Please make sure you check the weather and road conditions before travelling. It is rare, but if for any reason you cannot make it to the site due to conditions in the wintertime, the nearest accommodation will be in Ullapool. Please make sure that your vehicle will cope if conditions do turn difficult, and also please provide a mobile phone number to reach the campsite caretaker for when you are travelling. We'll advise where we can, but it will not always be possible to for us to know exactly what the conditions of the roads are away from the site itself.
