The village is located about 16 kilometers north of Ullapool and southwest of Lochinver in the sparsely populated region of Wester Ross, which belonged to the former county of Ross-shire. The main economic factors of the place are sheep farming and tourism. In Achiltibuie live about 300 people. The village is the largest village on the peninsula Coigach.

The town is located on the bay Badentarbat Bay, which is part of the Minch, a strait between the Scottish mainland and the island of Lewis.
