This small site has hot water and showers and is ideally located for expeditions to An Teallach.

Although other facilities are minimal the owners have provided picnic tables which save you bringing your own chairs and tables and make mealtimes somewhat more civilized than normal camping sites.

Getting There

Travel to the area by road is easiest from Inverness which is easily reached from the south via Perth on the main A9 road.

From Inverness go north on the A862 to Muir of Ord and then pick up the A832 towards Garve. Beyond there is a junction with the A835 signposted to Ullapool. Take this as far as the Falls of Measach and join the A832 again to Dundonnell, from Dundonnell, continue up the road for a few km until you find the campsite on the right hand side of the road at Badcaul.

National (Scotland, England and Wales) Rail links exist to Inverness and a rail/bus through ticket scheme operates from there to Ullapool.

Scheduled flights into Glasgow or Edinburgh airports provide access to Scotland but Inverness airport is closer to An Teallach and has scheduled flights from London airports and many European airports using Easyjet and FlyBe airlines.
