Overview

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.

Access and SatNav Advice

Recommended approach to the site is from Gairloch side due to steep hill from Ullapool direction.

Worth Noting

Backpackers have an undercover eating and cooking area. A mobile butcher/grocery van visits twice a week. Most shops and fuel stations close on a Sunday. No bank in Poolewe but post office has a cashpoint

Eat Local

A market with fresh produce takes place at the village hall on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Beautiful wide beach just outside the entrance.

Beautiful wide beach just outside the entrance. Short walk to NT for Scotlands Inverewe Gardens, a must see place even for non gardeners like me. Ideally placed for people heading up towards the North Coast 500 route.

I would agree that the facilitates could probably do with being up dated but that said they were well maintained and in excellent order. I doubt that there is a more picturesque site to be found, very beautiful with a great setting. I'm not sure I would recommend this site for active young children but if like us you have moody teenage girls who spend most of their time on their phone/ipads etc you will be fine. Saying that they did enjoy Inverewe Gardens.

what a pretty site, so beautifully kept and in a lovely spot looking over the Loch.

This review is for Inverewe Gardens Poolewe

what a pretty site, so beautifully kept and in a lovely spot looking over the Loch. The warden was so kind and helpful. Facilities were immaculate although a bit dated. Ten minute walk to the village Hotel which served good food and was dog friendly. Inverewe Gardens was worth a visit though in September there wasnt a lot of colour. Did a lovely 6 mile walk around the Loch behind the village. a bit strenuous but worth it. We de pitched and drove to the Cove about 8miles from Poolewe and found a wonderful Beach where you could wild camp. then to the end of the point which had super views. Unfortunately we had bad weather while we were there a lot of rain and very cold but the views when the sun did come out were breathtaking
