The Old Curing Station and Otter Cabin, Dry Island  
  • Uniquely situated in a Scottish West Coast island paradise, The Old Curing Station and Otter Cabin offer an unrivalled location. Dry Island is a tidal island but accessible at all times by the floating 'bridge over the Atlantic'.
  • Choose from the beautifully renovated B listed former curing station next to the island's own pier and part of the owner's house or the private location of the secluded purpose-built Otter Cabin, with its own decking area on the other side of the island.
  • Wildlife encounters are frequent with otters, seals, pine martens and a multitude of seabirds including great northern divers often seen from both properties. There are frequent sightings of the northern lights and meteorite showers in winter.
  • You can buy the freshest possible shellfish directly from the boat as it is landed by Ian, whose family have fished this area for generations. It is the only fishing station on the West Coast of Scotland still in use today.
  • Car parking is a short distance away on the mainland in our free private car park; your luggage can be ferried over by boat.
  • The local inn serving food, fine wines and ales, is directly opposite the island fifteen minutes' walk away.
  • The village of Badachro is ideally situated close to sandy beaches, heart-stopping scenery and spectacular hill walking.
  • The village of Gairloch is 5 miles away with a wide variety of shops, restaurants, bars and attractions.
Badachro Dry Island  is truly a unique holiday experience.
