The surrounding area

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.

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.

I have used the Poolewe site off & on for over 35 years and the facilities haven't really changed all that much. With it being on the N500 route it will become very busy and there is a slite shortage of showers , I think it really needs a complete refurbishment ( like Dingwall had ) . The site in general is very well looked after. I do understand the costs involved these days with refurbishment, baring in mind the nature of the site location. It would and could be the best of the " few " sites in Scotland.

Used C&C sites in the past so decided to become a full member.

This review is for Inverewe Gardens Poolewe

Used C&C sites in the past so decided to become a full member. So this site was the first one used since joining, and I have been well impressed by how well laid out this site is, the small garden areas throughout the site really make this site 5 star for me, lots of ongoing maintenance to the grass areas and flower beds by David Turnbull and his site assistants Alan and Carol help to make this cosy relaxing little site a hidden gem. David also helped me out with a missing awning part and brought a a spare one to me for free, now that''s what you call a Welcome to the Club. Me and my wife were based here for our 6 day tour of the north west coastline and really enjoyed our stay, we were even treated to a visit from the local Gairloch Pipe Band, who played some lovely Bagpipe favourites for site members,so thanks for that,Lads and Lassies. I'll finish by rating this great little site 5 stars for cleanliness in all aspects, and hope to find the same high standards at other C&C sites in the near future.
