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.

We found this site to be first class, the surrounding area was excellent for walking and the dog loved it. The local shop sells a wide range of food and drink, and the hotel has 10% off for early eaters and drinkers

Stayed for the third year in a row at this site, can't resist coming back! It's a small site but beautifully kept, right on the shores of Loch Ewe and in a lovely little village. I've read comments about the old fashioned facilities but they are perfectly adequate (they've opened up some more showers which are a touch compact but ok). There's a farmer's market in the village hall every Tuesday (about 200 yards away) - seafood, fresh fruit and veg, smoked products, bread - also refreshments and several stalls selling various things. At the side of the hall is the Button Bothy and Ron's Books, both worth a look. Inverewe Gardens is very close by, also worth a visit. Small shop and post office, tea room, pub (dogs welcome but advise booking for meals). Gairloch has fantastic beaches, a great butchers, several eating places and a hardware/farm/pet store which is amazing. Perfume Studio and Aroma Caf� at Mellon Charles worth a visit, as is the Loch Ewe Smokehouse. Great grocery store in Altbea, amazing choices! There is now a permanent exhibition of wartime exhibits - fascinating stories of the arctic convoys - this is just up the hill on the main road from Altbea. We will be back for certain.
