Loch Ewe was a hive of activity during WW2 and it was the point of departure for many of the convoys bound for Russia. It’s fitting therefore that there should be a lasting legacy along its shores to the heroes who braved Arctic waters under constant threat of attack from enemy aircraft and u-boats. Many wartime buildings, gun emplacements and anti-aircraft batteries still stand around the local landscape. 

We are a small team of committed volunteers working hard to create a multi-site museum around the shores of Loch Ewe dedicated to the Arctic Convoys.  In the meantime, you can visit our Exhibition in Inverasdale, where our extensive collection of convoy artefacts, pictures, photos, models and more are on display at the Old School.

It is open 2pm to 5pm on Wednesdays and Fridays from May through October.

Directions:
On the A832 at Poolewe turn on to the B8057 towards Cove (IV22 2LR) for 5 miles. The school is on the left."
