We are located close to a number of local attractions; we've provided an overview of some of these here and of course, we're happy to give you advice on what the area has to offer for every type of visitor.

 

Poolewe

At Poolewe you'll find very friendly local people along with a number of tourist facilities including a small swimming pool. A weekly, ceilidh (traditional Scottish music and dance) held at Poolewe Village Hall on Wednesday evenings during July and August. An excellent pub serving wholesome food can be found at the Poolewe Hotel.

Firemore Beach

A hidden gem amongst the headlands of Wester-Ross is Firemore beach, aptly named as it offers regularly the warmest swimming on the west coast of Scotland. Firemore beach is a ten to fifteen minute walk from Ach Da Thearniadh and is the perfect place for a brisk walk in the sea air or to watch the sun set at the end of a long day.

 

See & Do

WW2 Russian Arctic Convoys

At the northern end of Firemore Beach there is a lovely walk along the coastline of small hamlets, inlets and a harbour to a small settlement called Cove, where there is a memorial to the WW2 Arctic convoys that left from Loch Ewe to provide vital supplies to Murmansk and Archangel in Russia.

There is a museum that provides a full insight into the history of the Russian Arctic Convoys, with more information available at this website: http://www.russianarcticconvoymuseum.org/
