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.

Our first and unplanned visit to this excellent site.

This review is for Inverewe Gardens Poolewe

Our first and unplanned visit to this excellent site. We have just returned from a 5 day stay on this lovely site. We had issues with our planned site, a commercial site in the area we wanted to visit. Phoned to check availability and we were on our way. What a delightful, well presented and maintained site. Our hosts gave as a warm and friendly welcome and were that way throughout the visit. Pitches are positioned well and not cramped giving plenty of room and space between. Nobody goes to the West Coast expecting great weather but the time we were there it managed to be better than we left and good for us to check out the area for a planned visit in the near future and a longer stay! Loads to see and do for us close by and even more a little further afield.

Beautiful setting, peaceful exactly what we wanted, Midge deterrent required at this site have been to other sites on West Coast with Midge deterrent in use and had no problem, toilet block needs to be updated although spotlessly clean they are out of date, separate cubicles required for washing and shower, new stronger hand dryers required.

This site is absolutely immaculate ! The staff were very friendly and helpful and if not busy tending to customers were busy mowing, weeding, cleaning, painting etc. All required services were available and in excellent order. Located very close to Inverewe gardens which is worth a visit.

This review is for Inverewe Gardens Poolewe

I couldn't fault the site, it was maintained really well and the facilities were good. The shower was the best we had used while staying away. The view was amazing from nearly all the pitches. The welcome was ok but I still felt all the staff were a bit cold towards us. However it wasn't as frosty as previous cc sites. Would recommend the site and use it again.
