The jetty at Inverewe Gardens
The jetty at Inverewe Garden is used by the little boats from larger vessels, like the Hebridean Princess, to bring passengers ashore at Inverewe. Local people go canoeing from here and seals can be seen on the nearby rocks.

In December 2015 the National Trust for Scotland announced the expenditure of £530,000 to provide modern facilities and the space required in the care of some of the rare plants. This will take the form of a new greenhouse as the current facilities are described as “beyond economic repair and completely unsuitable for the needs of modern gardening”.
The total expenditure of £1.5 million includes extensive work on Inverewe House and a nearby summer house before opening the properties to the public.
