Loch Ewe looking north-east towards Poolewe


The pretty village of Poolewe sits in the shelter of Loch Ewe, at the mouth of the River Ewe where it tumbles down from Loch Maree. It is a pretty place in an area of spectacular scenery. The world-renowned Inverewe Garden (National Trust for Scotland) is just across the bay from the village. The garden was developed by the botanist Osgood Mackenzie from 1862 until his death in 1922. Warmed by the Gulf Stream, it is home to exotic plants, imported from all over the world - a must for all visitors to the area. North east along the coast is Gruinard Bay with its striking red sands. A series of attractive beaches skirt the bay and a number are easily reached from the main road. With spectacular scenery, mountains, excellent hillwalking, golf, fishing and much more... this is a great area for a holiday!
