Inverewe, Wester Ross, IV22 2LG

Inverewe is a landscape on the edge, a place of inspiration in a resilient landscape. At its centre is a house and garden, crafted from a degraded landscape on the NW highlands seaboard. The garden is one of the worlds top gardens full of plants of conservation interest for their diversity while proving an amenity increasingly valued for its resilience and seat of inspiration for the arts or a place of wellbeing to rest and recconect with the wonders of the natural world. The garden sits within a 2000 acre estate that is home to some of the countries most endangered wildlife, with habitats that range form mountains to littoral zones in a transect that connects international and local conservation designations. Within a Biosphere reserve and adjacent to the marine biological reserve, betwixt and between it is a space that is being used to connect people who visit the site, who live in the local community and who work with the estate with the challenegs of our time. Project areas being pursued include Sustainable Landuse, health and wellbeing in community, through art and eco therapy and the evaluation of ecosystem services. If you are interested in collaborating through bringing your evidence based research to our work we would be very happy to hear from you.
