Redpoint is a small settlement in the parish of Gairloch in western Ross-shire. It takes its name from Red Point, a low promontory to the south, which marks a turn in the coastline from facing west to south east as it becomes Loch Torridon.

Redpoint lies about 10 miles south-west of Gairloch, at the end of the B8056 road. A path leading from the road leads to a viewpoint from which it is possible (on a clear day) to see almost all of the north eastern coast of the Isle of Skye.

The villages of South Erradale, Opinan and Port Henderson are north along the B8056 coast road.
