Badachro - Wester Ross
Badachro (Gaelic Bad a' Chrodha) meaning cattle fold clump is a remote fishing village about 2 miles south of Gairloch. It is idyllically situated on an inlet of Loch Gairloch. Sheltered by several islands the bay provides a safe anchorage for fishing boats and yachts. At the end of the nineteenth century Badachro was a busy fishing centre. Fish, in particular cod, landed here and at Gairloch, was dried at Badachro. There were two curing stations - one on Eilean Horrisdale and one on Eilean Tioram. Lobsters, crabs and prawns are still landed here and sent to the markets both in the south and in Europe.
