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.

Christine and Mike were wonderful hosts and made us feel so welcome. They were very professional and helpful.They will be sadly missed by ourselves and other campers. We wish them all the best in their retirement.

the gardens are stunning, well worth a visit, no dogs allowed. There are few walks and usually something going on in the village hall. Hotel food good, dogs allowed. Trip into Aultbea is a must, beautiful.

This review is for Inverewe Gardens Poolewe

We arrived at an unusual time due unusual circumstances, we disrupted their work, but that did not matter and they (the wardens) responded to our needs without hesitation. All facilities are immaculately clean and tidy, as is the whole site. Clearly they care! However, my only criticism applies to this and to many other C&CC sites - that washroom/shower rooms and associated facilities are all so desperately in need of radical updates and refurbishment. This is 2017, not 1977 Indeed there are also many very good 'up to date' sites that C&CC could use as examples.
