Diabaig from the South

This postcard from the middle of the twentieth century shows Diabaig.

This remote village is situated on the west coast of Ross and Cromarty. It comprises a few buildings at Upper Diabaig and the little settlement of Lower Diabaig on the shore of a loch of the same name, a bay off Loch Torridon.

Diabaig from the Norse "deep bay" is situated on the border of the parishes of Applecross and Gairloch. The single track road to Diabaig from the village of Torridon, eight miles away, passes through some of the wildest and most beautiful scenery in Scotland.

The village of Diabaig has changed little since this photograph was taken. There are no shops or tourist facilities but some of the houses are now holiday homes.

Diabaig was used as the film location for the village in the 1995 movie "Loch Ness" and views from the road are shown in the film.

The road ends at Diabaig but a coastal track leads to Craig two miles away where there is a small hostel and then on another five miles to Redpoint. It is 45 miles by road to travel from Diabaig to Redpoint.
