Morefield (A' Mhór-choille in Gaelic) is a small hamlet, lying on the northern shore of Loch Broom, 2 miles to the north of Ullapool and south of Rhue in Ross and Cromarty, and is in the Scottish council area of Highland Scotland.

In some early documents[1] it is written as Morchyle.

Etymology[edit]

The English name is a corruption of the Gaelic meaning "the big wood".
