Acharacle is a township in Ardnamurchan, Lochaber, in the Scottish council area of Highland. The name comes from the Gaelic Ath Thorguil or Torquil's ford, following a battle in 1120 at a nearby ford across the river Shiel between the Celtic-Norse warrior Somerled and the Norse invader Torquil. Torquil was killed in the battle and his followers ousted from the area.

It lies on the western end of Loch Shiel and is surrounded by beautiful scenery making it a popular holiday destination for hill climbers and naturalists. It has, among other resources, a small primary school with around 60 children, a hotel, motor garage, bakers, fish and chip shop, and grocery store. It has the main postal sorting office for the peninsula of Ardnamurchan.

Acharacle is about 6km from the Dorlin Beach, where the ruins of Castle Tioram lie.
