About the Area

Poolewe & Inverasdale

Inverasdale is just over three miles from the village of Poolewe which has a well-stocked licensed grocer’s, two hotels, a café and a heated indoor swimming pool as well as the world-famous National Trust for Scotland Inverewe Garden.

The village is an excellent base from which to enjoy the attractions of Wester Ross, notably hill and cliff walking, bird watching, sailing, fishing and marine life.

For walkers and climbers, An Teallach, widely regarded as one of the most impressive mountain massifs in Britain, is about three quarters of an hour’s drive away at Dundonnell, and the Torridon Mountains, reached via Loch Maree and Kinlochewe, about an hour’s drive. A track leads directly from Poolewe into the “great wilderness” of Letterewe and Fisherfield forests. There are also superb coastal walks with cliffs, caves, waterfalls and wartime relics to explore.

A variety of birdlife can be viewed from the lochside near the house and otters and seals are frequently seen in the loch and along the coast. Deer are often seen on the hill behind Bruach Ard.

There are several stunning, unspoilt sandy beaches within easy driving distance, the nearest being at Firemore about two and a half miles from Bruach Ard.

For cyclists, there are a number of tracks as well as relatively quiet country roads.

The fishing port of Ullapool lies about an hour and a quarter drive to the north where a car ferry can be taken to Stornoway in the Western Isles and boat trips to the Summer Isles.



Gairloch is a beautiful harbour village approximately 10 miles away and has so much to offer visitors on the sea, on the shore and inland.

On the sea: fishing trips and marine wildlife tours go out daily from Gairloch pier and Badachro.

By the sea: all along the shore you can watch sea birds and other marine life and enjoy fine sandy beaches.

Golf: Gairloch's golf club is one of the most picturesque courses you will ever play and is open 7 days a week.  Visitors may hire clubs at the club house, which also has a cafe which offers a variety of buffet lunches, cakes and snacks.
