Back of Keppoch (Gaelic: Cùl na Ceapaich) is a small coastal settlement in the northwest Scottish Highlands, 40 miles (60 km) west of Fort William near to the A830 road to Mallaig.[1][2]

The Back of Keppoch is just north of Arisaig and south of Morar. Most of the houses on this road are crofts which double up as campsites in the summer months. A number of beaches line the road.
