Location: 

With wonderful views across Loch Carron towards Duncraig Castle , this traditional stone cottage is set in the heart of the National Trust village of Plockton. Refurbished to a very high standard, it overlooks the harbor and has its own secure hillside garden to the rear, as well as a lochside garden (with palm tree!) across the road. Thriving as a result of the influence of the North Atlantic Drift, many palm trees adorn the area, giving the village an almost Mediterranean feel. Yachts and dinghies sail past leisurely, and together with the pretty flower-filled gardens of the houses lining the shore, and the brilliance of Plockton's light effects, the village has become something of a haunt for artists, who can often be seen busy at their easels. Plockton's claim to fame arrived in the mid-1990s, when the BBC selected the village as the setting for three of its series of the television drama Hamish Macbeth. Originally Plockton was a crofting hamlet until the eighteenth century, when it became prosperous as a small fishing port and prawns are still landed at the old pier. Seal spotting and fishing trips can be arranged from here, and the village boasts a fine selection of inns serving seafood specialties. Apart from the village of Plockton itself, the National Trust also oversees the Lochalsh Woodland garden on the Balmacara Estate, and the medieval ruins of Strome Castle. Not far either lies the former Jacobite fortress of Eilean Donan Castle, one of the most photographed castles ever. A picture of enchantment, it is situated at the meeting place of three lochs and joined to the mainland by a causeway. Within a few miles also are the magnificent Falls of Glomach, tumbling down a sheer drop of 750ft. Applecross and Wester Ross nearby, with the Isle of Skye bridge, 6miles. Hill walking, fly fishing and water sports locally.
