About this place

It’s astonishing what you can grow in one of the most northerly corners of Scotland when you put your mind to it! Meandering through the garden on this remote stretch of coastline is a paradise of unusual and wonderful plants, where the unexpected greets you at every corner.

Inverewe celebrates the best of human achievements in the natural environment. Marvel at our heritage garden, containing species from across the globe and created from a barren wilderness in the 19th century. A labour of love and enduring commitment, it is a feast for your senses.

The mosaic of landscape habitats in the spectacular surrounding 800ha estate are home to Scotland's most iconic wildlife, including red deer, eagles, pine martens, otters and red squirrels. The estate is framed by mountains and two lochs, where the light and colours are forever changing.

This is a setting that inspires art and creativity. At its heart is a museum with a twist, where you are encouraged to interact with a variety of objects and play games. The adjacent Sawyer Gallery hosts exhibitions throughout the year that reflect the characteristics of the garden and surrounding environment.
