Diabaig (Scottish Gaelic: Dìobaig) is a remote coastal fishing and crofting township in Wester Ross, in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland.[1] Diabaig lies on the north shore of the sea loch of Loch Diabaig, an inlet off the north side of Loch Torridon, and is in the Highland council area.

The main part of the settlement is sometimes known as Lower Diabaig. Upper Diabaig is a few houses, about 1.5 km to the east.

Diabaig is at the end of a minor road, which runs along the north side of Loch Torridon, from the village of Torridon. The villages of Alligin Shuas and Inveralligin lie to the southeast along this road.

A footpath continues along the coast from Diabaig, running 11 km to the small settlement of Redpoint, near Gairloch.

Loch Diabaig played the part of Loch Ness in the 1995 film of the same name. Ted Danson starred
