Dundonnell in the Scottish Highlands

Holidays in Scotland in Wester Ross, Highlands of Scotland

Dundonnell

Dundonnell is a small community located at the head of Little Loch Broom being 26 miles from Ullapool and 12 miles from Corrieshalloch Gorge National Nature Reserve. The Dundonnell hotel is open to the public and the last time we visited the hotel had a very handy petrol station next to it.

Dundonnell has the impressive An Teallach mountain range to the south- west and this area is well known for outstanding hill walking opportunities as the area covers a large uninhabited area, very popular for hill walking and climbing.

The Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Team is based at Dundonnell and is made up of volunteers, helping rescue people who get in trouble in the mountains throughout this area.

If you love gardens then Dundonnell House is a member of the Scotland's Gardens Scheme with the garden being open to the public on specific dates throughout the year, or by appointment.

From Dundonnell you can take the single track road to explore the south side of Little Loch Broom at Badrallach and for the very fit and adventurous walk along the track to the Scoraig Peninsula.
Close to Dundonnell is our hamlet of Camusnagaul where you can stay in our holiday cottages, or in our bed and breakfast accommodation. We also have a caravan available for vacations. If you prefer to stay in a hostel then Camusnagaul also has a wonderfully friendly hostel.

We also have Maggie's Tea Room and Craft Shop where you can stop in just for a coffee, or for lunch, with snacks on offer during the day. At Maggie's you can also purchase our locally made beer made by the An Teallach Ale Company just along the road in a microbrewery.

With the world famous Corrieshalloch Gorge National Nature Reserve just 12 miles away it is easy to forget another fantastic waterfalls just along the road from Dundonnell, at Ardessie, next to Camusnagaul. These waterfalls are outstanding especially after a heavy rain shower and well worth the hike up the hill to see the larger waterfalls.
