Welcome to Fasgadh B and B, in the idyllic West Coast village of Poolewe in Wester Ross.
Fasgadh is a traditional village property approx 200 years old which has been recently renovated to a very high standard and now offers quality B and B with full facilities and WiFi access. Overlooking the river Ewe and mountains beyond, the house is situated in the heart of the village within walking distance of pub, local shop, post office and the world renowned Inverewe Garden.

We offer a comfortable, brightly decorated bedroom with en-suite shower facilities which sleeps 2 people in a double bed. The room has central heating, digital colour TV and tea/coffee making facilities. **(A separate sitting room/dining area is available for guest use. NOT available during current crisis)
The room rate includes continental breakfast.
Packed lunches are also available by prior arrangement. This listing is for our double ensuite. *** PLEASE NOTE THAT BECAUSE OF WORK COMMITMENTS WE CANNOT ALWAYS OFFER ACCESS TO THE PROPERTY DURING THE DAY ****. This doesn't seem to pose a problem as our guests want to be out and about taking advantage of the varied scenery and wildlife this beautiful area has to offer!

This remote area offers an excellent opportunity to see some of the rarest wildlife in Scotland in its natural habitat. Golden Eagle, Sea Eagle and many other smaller birds ie. Crossbill and Siskin can be found in the area. A colony of Common Seals is resident in Loch Ewe and Grey Seals are also found near the mouth of the loch together with the Great Northern Diver! Otters forage all around the shores of the loch and up into the River Ewe. Pine Marten, Wild Cat, Red Deer and many other secretive creatures may be seen locally. The famous Beinn Eighe Nature Reserve is only 20 miles distant - here can be found some of the rarest flora, bird and insect life.
Undoubtedly some of the best times to visit this beautiful part of Scotland is late spring and early summer (April/May) when our bird and wildlife is actively nesting/breeding and foliage is bursting on the trees and plants. Colours are fresh and the weather can often offer clear blue skies. Bird song is at its best and the night skies are just amazing!!. Late August and September shows off the purple of the heather-clad hillsides. But Winter too will show you these amazing landscapes with snow on the Mountain tops!! Come and enjoy this experience with us.

With some of the most rugged mountains in Scotland the area is popular with hill walkers and also abounds with a variety of low level paths and trails. Beautiful beaches are within a few miles drive and regular boat trips from nearby Gairloch allow the opportunity to view whales, dolphins and seals.

Poolewe stands at the head of Loch Ewe about half a mile from the world famous Inverewe Garden. It is one of the oldest settlements in the area as shown by the the recent discovery of a Pictish Stone in the old burial ground. During the 17th century Loch Maree was the main centre of iron production in Scotland. Poolewe was one of the first places in the country to have a blast furnace, but the felling of most of the woods around Loch Maree led to the decline of this industry. In the 18th century Poolewe was the main port serving the Outer Hebrides. Cattle and goods were sold at a large market (Feill Iudha or Ewe Market) held on the flat area behind the village.

The Second World War saw Loch Ewe as an important naval base for convoys crossing the North Atlantic and sailing around Scandinavia to Murmansk. Today Poolewe is a flourishing community offering a good choice of tourist accommodation. The village is an ideal base for exploring the Western Highlands with excellent opportunities for rambling, hillwalking, climbing, birdwatching and observing natural history.

The road towards Cove offers spectacular views across Loch Ewe to the Sutherland mountains far to the north, with a stunning panorama of some of the remotest mountains in Scotland behind Poolewe itself. Just beyond Inverasdale is Firemore with its superb sandy beach. The road ends at Cove where a cave can be found which was used as a church until the late 19th century. Extensive coastal defences were built at Cove during the Second World War to protect the convoys anchored in Loch Ewe. Their remains can be seen at the very end of the road.
