Badbea is the haunting site of a now abandoned settlement. Though beautiful, it is a windswept and bleak spot. Following the Highland Clearances people were forced to live here, having been cleared from the fertile straths inland.


Well worn though rough path down to the Monument; optional continuation is on faint paths through the heather.

Public Transport

Buses on A9.


Signed car park on south side of the A9. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
