Overview

Venture out to our most northerly Scottish campsite in the Western Highlands.

Our Inverewe Gardens Club campsite shares its name with the world-famous tropical Inverewe Gardens created by Osgood Mackenzie in 1862. This lush oasis perches on a peninsula at the edge of Loch Ewe surrounded by more than 2,000 acres of conservation estate.

Our campsite, just a short walk away, is another oasis of peace and calm. This pretty tree-lined site enjoys glorious views that extend over Loch Ewe – the eagle-eyed may spot otters and seals enjoying the waters. Catch the weather right and the sunsets from here are sublime.

The site has toilet and shower facilities, a laundry and backpacker facilities. For provisions the village of Poolewe, a short walk away has a good shop, as well as a tearoom and hotel.

There are plenty of walks to be enjoyed from site or cycle to Inveradale around the Loch. Further north Rubha nan Sasan, beyond Cove is home to a range of WWII command posts and gun emplacements which helped guard the entrance to Loch Ewe during the war.

Nearby Gairloch has a heritage Museum and Marine Life Centre offering daily cruises to survey dolphins, whales and seals.

Access and SatNav Advice

Recommended approach to the site is from Gairloch side due to steep hill from Ullapool direction.

Worth Noting

Backpackers have an undercover eating and cooking area. A mobile butcher/grocery van visits twice a week. Most shops and fuel stations close on a Sunday. No bank in Poolewe but post office has a cashpoint

Eat Local

A market with fresh produce takes place at the village hall on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

This review is for Inverewe Gardens Poolewe

We visited this site in August 2014, although we had been there before, thanks to the green fingers of the current wardens the site looks fantastic with it's manicured floral borders and the overall cleanliness of the site. We had a fabulous stay and would recommend this site to anyone that loves fantastic scenery and the great outdoors. We will definitely be back.

The site is across the road from the beach and a short walk to the Inverewe NT gardens.

This review is for Inverewe Gardens Poolewe

The site is across the road from the beach and a short walk to the Inverewe NT gardens. Poolewe has very few shops and you feel part of the community in the Post Office / village store. The site is immaculate, clean and well tended. Infact the lawns are probably the best tended on any site to date! The wardens were friendly and always ready to help where they could. Inverewe gardens are worth a visit, best in spring or early summer but very busy and quite expensive. The coastal road north of Inverewe is a very scenic route with views over the sea lochs past Aultbea.
