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.

Firstly, the site managers greeted you with much pleasure and would be brilliant at all sites. Everything was as it should be,the only exception being the too few showers although both were extremely clean and tidy. They are just in need of expansion. The grounds were very well kept and all concerned worked tirelessly to keep it looking great. Overall, this is a lovely site for a quiet, relaxing stay.

The site staff were relaxed and welcoming, the grounds are immaculate, the facilities are pristine at all times, and the setting is breathtaking - with wonderful views down the loch and an impressive mountain backdrop. The village itself, though small, has all essential facilities - including a small community swimming pool and cash via the post office. The area abounds in pleasant walks and bike trips. An A1 site in every respect.
