Ardmair (Scottish Gaelic: Àird Mhèar) is a village in Wester Ross, in the North West Highlands of Scotland. A fishing village, Ardmair is located 3 miles (4.8 km) north of Ullapool along the A835 road. It is a popular holiday resort, with a caravan site and a number of holiday homes. During the holidays, visitors can hire a boat from the beach at Ardmair, including canoe boats. The peak of Ben Mor Coigach is to the north, and is sometimes climbed by people staying in Ardmair.
On the right hand side of Ardmair Bay is Isle Martin, about a kilometre from Ardmair Point at its nearest point. This island is managed as a nature reserve, and was owned by the RSPB until 1999. On 3 May 1999 ownership of the island passed to a charitable trust formed by the local community, who agreed to assume responsibility for the island. A passenger ferry running from Ardmair to Isle Martin operates during the summer.
