Plockton, Ross-shire

cottage near Eilean Donan

This newly built, modern cottage with its own garden has been specifically designed to meet the needs of the holidaymaker. It is perfect for a quiet relaxing vacation or as a base to enjoy wonderful scenery and exhilarating outdoor pursuits. The cottage is situated in the small village of Achnandarach, whose name means 'forest wind', and nearby there are stunning views over to Rassay, Skye and the mountains beyond. Only a mile away is the village of Plockton, regarded by many as the most attractive village in the West Highlands. Plockton is quiet through most of the year but is a popular destination for visitors in the summer months, particularly during its long established, small boat sailing regatta fortnight in August.

There are many fine low level and coastal walks in and around the village where otters and birdlife can be spotted. For the more active, sailing, kayaking, mountain biking, fishing and hill walking are particularly popular with Torridon and Kintail only a short journey away. The Plockton district is an area with interests for everyone. Visitors can enjoy the romantic Eilean Donan Castle, the Lochalsh Woodland Garden at Balmacara maintained by the National Trust, or the remote coastal settlement of Applecross reached by a memorable journey over the highest road in Scotland. Locally landed seafood and Plockton brewed ale can be enjoyed all year round in several nearby inns and restaurants.

At nearby Kyle of Lochalsh is the bridge over to the beautiful Isle of Skye which boasts spectacular mountain, cliff and seascapes and some unique geological formations. From there, take a boat trip from Elgol on the Bella Jane to spot seals, dolphins or whales or to visit the elusive and magical Loch Coruisk in the heart of the Cuillin mountains. Visit the Talisker Distillery or one of the many artist studios or enjoy a meal at the world famous Three Chimneys restaurant. Swim and picnic at the enchanting Fairy Pools.
