Destination Diabaig...CLOSED TIL SPRING 2023
We are so sorry to have to end this season early and in such sad circumstances. Amanda's wee mum has passed away very suddenly. We just dont feel we can manage it all. Your incredible loyalty, support and understanding means the world to us and we are very sorry to disappoint you.
We look forward to seeing you all again next year ... we'll see you in Spring, or for updates and stuff join us on our Gille Brighde Facebook page
A tiny lochside hamlet, with a backdrop of rugged crags and cliffs, a glittering loch with a horseshoe bay and jaunty little pier, and acres of Wild West Scotland to explore – it is quite simply one of those spots which make any visit to Scotland so worthwhile.
The road to (and from) Lower Diabaig from Torridon is a winding climb through moors and lochans, passing above and around the villages of Inveralligin and Alligin Shuas, before climbing steeply and dramatically inland. Here you will cross the Bealach na Gaoithe, ('pass of the winds' ahemm), with incredible views over Upper Loch Torridon towards Ben Damph and Coulin Forests.
The road then curves down to Upper Diabaig and finally into Lower Diabaig itself.
A journey worth taking for it’s own sake but we think there is another reason to come visit this special place.
We have decided to make this place our home and our lifestyle business.
We would like to share with you some warm friendly hospitality and food that really does help make the journey worthwhile. A taste of local, sustainable and exceptional local produce, served with a little creativity and imagination.
We are very dog friendly, well behaved dogs are welcome to come into the restaurant - we also have a lovely large garden area for them (and you) to sit in and watch the world go by.
Diabaig is a crofting village and there are sheep with the right to roam - please make sure your dogs are under your close control at all times.
If you come for an evening meal with us you can park up overnight in a small camper, preferably with onboard loo!
The road to Diabaig is not suitable for large motorhomes or caravans.
Please be aware there are no public toilets in facilities in Diabaig (only a small toilet within the restaurant which has limited opening times).
Always dispose of your waste at appropriate sites or bag it and bin it. Keep us all clean... Thank you
