The Inn, Badachro

A view of the Badachro Inn, in Badachro. Located in close proximity to the jetty, the inn has become a local institution as a result of it being the village's primary drinking establishment, and its beautifully scenic location.

Badachro is a remote fishing village located three kilometres south of Gairloch, on the banks of Loch Badachro. An excellent natural anchorage, it was a busy fishing village during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Cod was landed in the village and dried at the nearby curing stations at Eilean Horrisdale and Eilean Tioram.

The cod fishing industry has long since declined, but lobsters, crabs and prawns are still landed at the village, bound for markets in the south and in Europe. The village's excellent harbour means that it is also a popular anchorage for yachts.
