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.
