Achiltibuie (Scottish Gaelic: Aichillidh Bhuidhe) is a long linear village in Ross and Cromarty, Highland, on the Coigach coast of northwestern Scotland, overlooking Loch Broom and the Summer Isles which lie to the west. Located 10 miles (16 km) northwest of Ullapool, Achiltibuie is home to the Hydroponicum, a garden where plants are grown using a hydroponic system, in water and without soil. It is the last stop on the road to Achduart.
