Map of where the Arctic Convoys operated - from Loch Ewe to Arcangel

Nearly as remote and peaceful as Aultbea, and involved in the assembly of Russian Arctic Convoys. It shared that with all the other little places round Loch Ewe, such as Aultbea and Inverasdale. The map above shows the route taken by convoys, First, the North Sea, then into the Norwegian Sea and Barents Sea before docking in Archangel.

A project to set up a Russian Arctic Conveys Museum is currently run from Poolewe. The contact for that is here.

Until that happens, there is a temporary exhibition at Inverasdale Primary School (no longer a school). A programme of events is also available here.
