Parth Galen Studio, Plockton, Ross-shire
Parth Galen Studio is situated in Achnandarach right in the heart of the west coast of Scotland. It is a stone's throw from the Skye Bridge, Eilean Donan Castle and within minutes of the beautiful village of Plockton. There are numerous walks from the cottage or if you want to go further afield there is some wonderful countryside to explore. If you are more energetic there is the odd Munro around which you will be unable to resist. There are also numerous watersport activities and mountain biking is very popular. Or, if you fancy something more peaceful, there is some excellent fishing to be found locally. Further afield, you can enjoy the National Trust gardens at Balmacara, visit the Isle of Skye, walk in the Torridon or Kintail mountains, and discover and explore this unspoilt and scenic area of west Scotland.
Plockton, on the shores of Loch Carron, is an idyllic spot. The picturesque village is lined with neatly painted houses and has a delightful harbour where you can find a pleasure boat to take you out on a fishing or seal spotting trip. Palm trees line the main street and the particular quality of the light makes the village a haven for artists and photographers. You can browse in the shops and galleries or simple enjoy a stroll along the bay. Plockton is considered by the locals to be the "Jewel in the Highlands' crown".
Returning in the evening to Parth Galen Studio you can sit in front of the wood burning stove and relax with that favourite bottle of wine or try one of the local restaurants, many of which specialise in serving some of the fantastic seafood dishes for which the west coast is famous.
