Badachro is a former fishing village, in the north west Highlands of Scotland.GeographyBadachro sits about 3 km south of Gairloch on the shore of Gair Loch, and is an excellent natural harbour popular with yachts. It is scenic and has a pub called the Badacro Inn and a small restaurant. Approximately 2 miles to the SE are located the Fairy Lochs, the site of a 1945 plane crash which is now a designated war grave. The crash site has been preserved as a memorial to the USAAF servicemen who lost their lives in the accident, and is accessible by a rough track near the Shieldaig Lodge Hotel.Badachro is in the Highland council area.FishingAt the end of the nineteenth century, Badachro was a busy fishing village. Cod, landed here and at Gairloch, was dried at one of two curing stations at Badachro - one on Eilean Horrisdale and one on Eilean Tioram. Today, lobsters, crabs and prawns are landed for markets in the south and in Europe.
