The Village

The picturesque village of Kinlochewe nestles to the south-east of Loch Maree at the southern end of the Beinn Eighe Nature Reserve. It is 51 miles west of Inverness at the junction of the A832 Garve to Gairloch road with the A896 road through Glen Torridon. The photograph to the right is taken from Glen Docherty, looking over the village north-west to Loch Maree.  It is ideally situated for both loch and sea fishing, climbing, hill walking, bird watching or a quiet relaxing holiday. It is the perfect base for anyone wishing to tour the north west Highlands as it is well situated to reach Skye, Ullapool and the famous Inverewe gardens. Mountain guides are available in the area if required.

In the village there is a shop/ post office/café, a hotel (which has a public bar and serves meals all day), a petrol station and the Whistle Stop Café (which also serves meals all day). The Bank of Scotland and butcher are in Gairloch as well as a nine hole golf course and leisure centre. The travelling bank comes to Kinlochewe on Tuesdays and the butcher/vegetable van on Mondays and Fridays. There are also two churches.
