Back to Inverewe

Outdoor adventures

Situated between the Marine Protection Area and Biosphere Reserve in Wester Ross, Inverewe is the gateway to wilderness in the Scottish North West Highlands.

There’s a network of paths throughout the garden for you to explore at your leisure.

Walk our new Poetry Trail, inspired by the beauty of Inverewe and created by our poet in residence. Go on a treasure hunt to find plants and places in some of the most hidden spots in this award-winning heritage garden. The newly published Spirit of Inverewe poetry book is available exclusively in the visitor centre.

Two trails lead around the estate – the Pinewood Trail (a 45-minute, low-level, circular walk) and the Kernsary Path (an 8-mile circular walk through some of the most beautiful wild scenery in Scotland). Both offer fantastic views.

Take a wildlife boat trip from the Inverewe Garden jetty. Skipper Jamie has years of experience on the waters around Wester Ross and will give you an amazing insight into the marine environment. Inquisitive seals will keep an eye on you while eagles soar above. But what will be in Jamie’s creel when he hauls it onto the deck of the Striker? Boat trips run from April–end September.
