Poolewe provides all the correct combination for a great holiday visit - beautiful scenery, mountains including several nearby munros, Loch Maree and the Beinn Eighe nature reserve. Along the coast from Poolewe on Loch Ewe are small hamlets and crofting areas, harbours and fishing boats. The beach at Firemore near Cove is great for kids, dogs and "adults" of all ages, and is easily accessible from the main road. Also nearby is Gruinard Bay with its lovely sandy beach that stretches for what seems miles when the tide is out. Safe and reasonably warm to swim in during the summer.

View over Loch Ewe near Poolewe

At Poolewe there is an excellent camp site that has been around for many years, and if you prefer to camp in the wilds you can, for just 10 pounds a week at the nearby Firemore beach along from Cove - no toilets or running water, what you do get is wide open space and camping on grassy areas next to the beach.

Explore Scotland and the Scottish Highlands with our Interactive map of Scotland or go to the Map of Scotland site to buy maps.

From personal experience we found eating at the Bridge Cottage Cafe absolutely great (we ate there 3 times during a 1 week holiday at Camusnagaul in the autumn), run by Michael & Connie Inman they provide the ideal place to stop for lunch or coffee and home baking while touring around the Loch Ewe and Loch Maree area.

The food is very reasonably priced and delicious Scottish fare. You can't miss the cafe as it is opposite public park and shop next to the bridge as you enter Poolewe. Parking is available opposite the cafe and you will see a wooden bear sitting outside. The cafe is open most weekends during the winter. Their phone number is (01445) 781 335.

Another place to visit is the Garden Cottage Nursery at Tournaig near Poolewe. They have a wide range of plants for sale, a nice feature is the garden that is incorporated into the nursery.

River Ewe is famous for it's salmon fishing and beauty. It flows from Loch Maree and this must be one of the most beautiful areas in the Scottish Highlands. The original Scots Pines from the Caledonian forest are still seen on the islands in the loch and the area was once covered in forest and inhabited by wolves and bears. These are now long gone, however you will still see lots of wildlife including deer and eagles throughout this area.

The photographs below are of this area and we hope you enjoy them.
