Gairloch and Badachro

Gairloch ( Geàrrloch in Gaelic ) is a small village on the shores of Loch Gairloch on the northwest coast of Scotland.

Gairloch comprises two villages separated by the main beach - which is a crescent of white sand. If approaching from the south (via Kinlochewe), Charlestown is the first of Gairloch's villages and is notable for the Old Inn (good food), Flowerdale and the harbour.

Strath is the main village centre on the northern approach to the village where the tourist information centre, primary and secondary schools, petrol filling station and a number of shops can be found, including a Somerfield Supermarket.

Badachro is a village about 3 km south of Gairloch, in the north west Highlands of Scotland. It sits on the shore of Loch Gairloch, and is considered one of the best natural harbours in the United Kingdom
