Auchindrean (Scottish Gaelic: Achadh an Dreaghainn) is a small settlement close to the southern end of Loch Broom in Wester Ross, in the Highland council area of Scotland. Auchindrean is in Strath More, between Braemore and Ullapool. It lies to the west of the A835 road and the River Broom.

In 1870, Auchindrean Bridge was built across the river by railway engineer Sir John Fowler, 1st Baronet, who owned the estate. This is a lenticular-truss wrought-iron bridge, said to be unique in Scotland, and is now Category A listed. It is a similar style to the Forth Bridge, designed later by Fowler.
