|The road to Inverewe is not very busy.|
The road out was very good, then it got narrower and narrower until it was one lane with passing places. We pulled over in one place for 3 motor homes, 2 cars and a delivery truck to pass, so it's not a little traveled road!
|Rock outcroppings give it a very rugged look and feel.|
There doesn't appear to be much agriculture, as far as growing things, but there were sheep. The houses were far apart and very small. In no time we arrived to the small village of Inverewe, driving on the the gardens on the outside of town.
|Houses are few and far between.|
The gardens were developed from the 1860's by Osgood Mackenzie, a man with a vision, who was followed by his daughter, Mairi, in transforming this barren, windswept headland into a unique garden. The area is insulated by the North Atlantic Drift, allowing plants from around the world to thrive.
