Mellon Udrigle (Scottish Gaelic: Meallan Ùdraigil or Na Meall. Possibly the correct Gaelic is Mealbhan Ùdraigil, meaning the sand dunes of Udrigle[1]) is a small remote coastal tourist, fishing and crofting hamlet on the north west coast of Ross-shire, Scottish Highlands and is in the Scottish council area of Highland.

The village of Opinan is directly to the north and the village of Achgarve is directly to the south, and Laide slightly further south.

Mellon Udrigle is home to the site of an ancient Pictish hut circle[2][3]
