Dornie (Scottish Gaelic: An Dòrnaidh )[2][3] is a small former fishing village in the Kintail district in western Ross-shire Highlands of Scotland (2006 census ). It is near the meeting point of Loch Duich, Loch Alsh and Loch Long.

The A87, the main road to Skye, passes just outside the village. Before the construction of the bridge, the main road passed through the centre of the village and crossed Loch Long via a short ferry ride. Amongst bagpipers, the tune Dornie Ferry is well known strathspey.

Eilean Donan is a famous castle on a nearby island. The village itself runs alongside the water hosting a variety of village homes, one tiny shop, a hotel and two bars. Dornie is also the main stay of Kinlochshiel Shinty Club.
