An isolated hamlet of the Knoydart district, on the northern shore of Loch Nevis in the old county of Inverness-shire. Inverie is served by a passenger ferry from Mallaig, which continues onwards to Tarbet, lying 4½ miles (7 km) to the south in North Morar. Inverie benefits from a primary school, youth hostel and is home to the most remote public house in Britain, the Old Forge. The surrounding Knoydart estate was acquired by the community in 1999. Electricity is provided by a private hydro-electric scheme, supplemented a diesel generator situated in the village. The early 19th-century Inverie House was once the occasional home of the notorious Lord Brocket (1904-67).
