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.

Most importantly you need to book this site in advance.

This review is for Inverewe Gardens Poolewe

Most importantly you need to book this site in advance. All the time we were there the site was full for caravans and motorhomes due to the popularity of the NC500 route, which runs past the site. A lovely site looking out over Loch Ewe, albeit separated by a road. Glorious sunsets. Facilities were the oldest that we have come across at a Club site, and this showed with a number of leaks etc during our stay. However they are still above most non club sites! They are immaculately clean. There are beautiful flower beds and the site is reasonably sheltered apart from the front few pitches. We survived Storm Hector in a pop top camper van. Great walks from the site - just ask Stuart. Otherwise go the beach at Gairloch and drive up to Cove. Local market well worth visit on Tuesdays. Poolewe Hotel has good food. Fish and chips next to site on Friday nights. Small shop in Poolewe but no fresh local produce, you can get that at Gairloch. It is a long way north!

My favourite site! A pretty, small site with a very friendly welcome! Stuart (one of the wardens) very knowledgeable about local walking/off road cycling routes and local bays etc worth visiting. Several longer walks accessible without having to take motorhome off site during stay. Wonderful to have electric showers without push-buttons/timers! A spotlessly clean gem of a site :-)

Very good site right next to the Loch with walks very near by for 4 legged friends.

This review is for Inverewe Gardens Poolewe

Very good site right next to the Loch with walks very near by for 4 legged friends. Facilities were very clean but looking a little tired but no problem. All staff were friendly but for one who I think was the manager. Unfortunately we arrived 40 minutes early as we thought the entry time was earlier. This was pointed out to us in an abrupt and dismissive manner. We very nearly turned round on the spot as we felt well and truly admonished, however we put it down to him having a bad day but I did witness a similar attitude with others. We would still go back because of the location even with my comments above.
