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. There is a public slipway opposite the entrance drive to Bruach Ard.
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 lakeside near the house and otters and seals are frequently seen in the loch and along the coast.
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.
At Gairloch, ten miles from Inverasdale, there is a golf course, a museum, a leisure centre, and a marine life centre with sea cruises.
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.
