"Venture out to our most northerly Scottish campsite in the Western Highlands."
Stay at Inverewe Gardens in June and you are so far north, you will enjoy extra hours of daylight. Otters and seals swim in the waters of Loch Ewe and the hills of Wester Ross rise behind it, while the sunsets have to be seen to be believed.

The Site must be the best setting in the
network. Good walks, wildlife, views second to none and the
most spectacular sunsets. - Frank Greenan

We arrived and booked for one day initially but booked another day the same evening as well!
The site is immaculate and a credit to the hard work the staff undertake to keep it that way.
pitches for motorhomes/caravans are generous gravel and a motorhome service point is at the entrance for draining/filling with water.
Views over the loch are worth the trip alone, and the village has a small shop and hotel for a drink although we didn't try it.
If you like a bit of sea fishing, there is a sandy bay about 4km along the west side of the loch on the right hand side with a small 'island' which was always connected to land although worth keeping an eye on the tide!! a couple of nibbles at sand eels produced a nice sea trout for tea!

Friendly Wardens welcomed us onto site, facilities were great if a little dated and the motorhome service point was particularly useful for us. The pitches were spacious and well laid out and fairly level. The site was quiet. The road out of the village to Cove is well worth a visit and at the end of the road theres a pretty moving memorial to the guys who lost their lives in the WW2 Russian Convoys - I didnt expect to see that and was amazed by the area's history as an important player in the conflict. theres some fantastic beaches and of course the views are to die for. Perfect! we will be back.

I visited this site recently and we were very impressed by the warm welcome from Raymond and Tina.
The staff obviously have a lot of pride in their work, the site was really well maintained and the toilet facilities were spotless.
This was the second time we had been there and on both occasions the staff were very helpful.
The site is in a beautiful area and it's overlooking a very pleasant bay.
I will certainly go there again next time I'm in the area.
You can't ask for better than this, the location itself is superb in every way. Sea, scenery, walking or just relaxing it's got it all. The staff are very friendly and more than accommodating, the facilities are spotless and frequently checked. The site itself is maintained to the highest standard. We will definitely visit again and again and........

Really loved this site. Clean & tidy beyond description. Wardens are great and work all day to keep the place immaculate. Loch Ewe is just across the road from the site and the view from our pitch was just magnificent! My young boy got some great photographs of Herons and wading birds when the tide was out. Great place for cycling too. We took a trip on a boat cruise at nearby Gairloch which was quite stunning and highly recommended but would be advisable to book in advance as they are very popular! The small village of Poolewe has a well stocked Mace shop and a small swimming pool, that was a bit dated but still nice. It also has a pub/hotel, which served food, but we did not visit this. There are some lovely walks around the area up by Inverewe gardens although we did not go into the gardens themselves. I just wish we had had better weather but we enjoyed it all the same. This is a gem of a site and would love to return. Can't complain about anything at this site as it was so clean and well run. The site was as quiet as a mouse after 11pm or so, which after a couple of noisy non C&CC sites we have been on recently came as a great relief! If tent camping, as mentioned on a previous post, take rock pegs as the ground is quite hard.
Had a great time here and was sad to leave - even though it rained quite a bit during our visit, the pitches coped very well as the drainage is excellent.
Fantastic staff, fantastic site & fantastic location!

Well laid out and nice views across the bay at Poolewe. Staff were always busy around site and the number one priority was keeping the toilet/showers clean and the grounds neat and tidy.
Would definitely go back again - recommended.

site wardens great always full of information from front gate to sea loch only 50m great for canoes ,toilets spotless i had great time to relax will be back .
Lovely site,staff very helpful and friendly.most of the tent pitches with hook up are among the camper vans and caravans,but we were lucky and got a pitch right on the front with fantastic views out to sea.You do need rock pegs - but having camped in Scotland for many years we always use rock pegs - so no problems.Weather was really wet but the site was really well drained, so no issues with boggy pitches
DATE STAYED: June 2012
What an idyllic setting - peace & refreshing for the soul. Magnificent views from most pitches. Well drained pitches.Wardens management of site superb - prepared to go the extra mile to make holiday experience the best. Spotless facilities. Well done

Booked in for 3 nights, stayed for 5, enjoyed it so much. Exceptionally clean and tidy site, not even a sweet wrapper to be found. Amenities block faultless. The staff were always on hand and willing to help if required. Will be there again later this year.
Most friendly wardens.beautiful location and ideal for relaxing break
A nice site with wonderfull views. The sunset is to die for. Oitches are a little on the small side but just adequate. We stayed for 4 nights and 1 of the 2 showers in the mens was out of order all the time. All other facilities we good and the area is outstanding.

We found this site to be very clean and tidy in a beautiful location across the road from the sea, however the facilities could do with modernising eg toilet cubicles wider and wash basins in enclosed cubicles for privacy. It's in a good location for exploring the area and the Hotel in poolewe just down the road alows dogs in the bar. We would visit again.
SUITABLE FOR: Older couples,Peaceful break,Younger couples
The site managers are very friendly and helpful. Very good site much improved over the years. It now benefits from an additional number of hardstands and the electrics have been improved. The walk along the seafront is very plesent. The site is close to Inverewe Gardens which is well worth a visit.
Stayed here for 3 nights, originally only 2 nights but phoned ahead to increase by 1 night and that was no problem at all. A lovely quiet site, well maintained. There is a heated shower area and a non heated area too. Wardens are very, very helpful. Local shop is only a stones throw away and has all you will need ( if a little pricey) Nice walks and we cycled to Inverabsdale around the Loch about 11 mile round trip.
DATE STAYED: April 2012
Had a wonderfully relaxing stay overlooking Loch Ewe. There are some lovely walks for the dog and the village shop has everything you need. Facilities were spotless and we received a warm welcome on arrival.

One of the nicest sites we stayed on during our month long tour of the Highlands. Very picturesque overlooking the loch/sea with wonderful sunsets. The staff were very helpful and friendly and had obviously put a lot of work into the lovely flowerbeds. While the toilet block was a little dated the the showers were lovely and hot with bags of pressure and very clean. Quaint village and some good walks in area.
DATE STAYED: September 2011
This site is a must for anyone touring the western highlands of Scotland. It has to be one of the best maintained sites anywhere - the three days we were there the staff were continually weeding flower beds, tending the grounds, sweeping and cleaning. The facilities are excellent and spotless. We had the unfortunate experience of suffering break failure but the helpfulness of the staff rescued our holiday - they did everything from reorganising our onward bookings to finding someone to sort our problem and even gave us a very welcome cup of tea. C&CC committee please give this management team a medal. No room left to extoll the virtues of the area - please do go and see for yoursef especially Inverewe Gardens.

The best site we have stayed at. We arrived late and were still made very welcome by the staff. The site is most beautiful and the area is stunning. Ground is hard but you do expect that when you are near the sea with a rocky coastline. Good tent pegs (rock) do the job well. We cannot praise the staff enough for all there help during our stay and they always had time to stop and have a joke with us. We will be back for longer next time.
The set-up for tents is VERY poor and silly, obstructive rules & regs are enforced.
Grass is so stoney that it's almost like an inch-and-a-half of turf over Tarmac, so expect to damage all of your pegs and still not get your tent anchored - this was the same for all five tents we saw pitched during our stay, and having spoke to some of the other campers they all had the same trouble. This could be very dangerous if the wind gets up.
Pitches MUST be 20ft apart and directly in line with the pitch markers (another C&CC site we stayed at on Skye didn't have this unsociable rule) and don't expect friends to be pitched together even if you asked for that when booking. No washing lines either - you MUST use the normal-sized rotary line (there's only one) which is in the most sheltered corner of the site so it doesn't get the breeze. We discovered this rule before we even got our line tied to the tree properly, when we were made to take it down.
It's almost like this site doesn't want people to stay in tents at all.
Good views and pretty clean but the site is far too authoritarian. We won't be back.
What a gem of a site! This is our second visit to this area but first to this site and we will certainly be back. Gary and Traci on site are two very special people and made our stay very pleasant, chatting to us like old friends. They worked constantly and the site is beautiful. We were blessed with good weather for our three week stay. Everything was spotless, and kept immaculately tidy. Our 13 year old struggled a bit as the site is not really geared up for children, with no play area to meet friends, but he survived. The village is small with a good pub, lovely tea room and small well stocked shop and Inverewe gardens are a short walk away from the site and well worth a visit. Everyone was very pleasant, and is probably the nicest holiday I have had in years. Thanks to all at Inverewe!!!

Staff are very helpful and friendly and I especially appreciate the new garden displays. The new hardstandings are fantastic and the new Chemical disposal is 5 star with its hand dryer/wash handbasin and even soap. I have been comming for over 30 years and will keep comming back. I will be back next june.
DATE STAYED: June 2011
Peaceful site with amazing views. Dogs can be walked along the edge of Loch Ewe which is just across the road.
Ashton and Angela, the wardens who welcomed us, were very welcoming and helpful.
Facilities are spotless. Milk and other basics are available onsite.
We will certainly be back here. I rate this site highly and one I would visit when in the area.
My favorite site of all time - let down badly now by removal of grass pitches, (please remember - you are the CAMPING and caravanning club!) Facilities are outdated and none too clean. A disappointing visit.

agree with other reviews that the site needs upgraded, but the views and the sunsets are to die for. We have been coming here for years and love it. Lots to do in surrounding areaa. Great beaches at Firemore amd Gairloch. Would be nicer if club invested in some midgee machines to protect its loyal members.
DATE STAYED: July 2009
A lovely area to visit, plenty of walks in the area. Although the site was booked well in advance of our visit for a pitch able to accomodate an awning and an 8 metre long caravan, we were allocated a pitch on steeply sloping ground and on exposed large tree roots, and very close to overhead tree branches. We were positoned by the site staff and left in no doubt that was our final position. we could not level the van owing to the steep slope and the exposed tree roots were in the way of the caravan door, and made entrance and exit unsafe. we moved the van slightly in order to miss these roots, approximately no more than six inch, and this incurred the wrath of the site staff member who told us to move it back or forget any chance of using an awning on the pitch. All this occurred because the jockey wheel of the caravan was six inch away from a marker stone. Needless to say we didn't bother with an awning, it was not practical to erect one anyway on the pitch. WE are both elderly caravanners with health issues and we think we were treated rather harshly. We will not be visiting this site again, because of the way we were treated.

A site in an excellent location, badly let down by the appalling, unheated toilet and shower facilities. The Chemical Disposal Point regularly blocks and there is no proper motorhome service point. A site badly in need of renovation.
DATE STAYED: September 2010
We spent a week here as the second part of our honeymoon. The site was quite busy and crowded but we had a lovely quiet corner plot. The facilities were well maintained and spotless. The location is stunning and we will definitely be returning to this site.
Although this was a nice site and the reception was friendly, it lacked atmosphere and was austere. It has rules and regulations for everything, you will not do this.
You will park in this slot and facing this way!
Which is ok when the weather is fine but with a howling wind and driving rain its nice to position your tent away from the prevailing conditions. Comparing it to other sites I've used across the Highlands - this one is not on the list to visit again.
