The sea is integral to Plockton. The community once thrived on fishing and crofting, and now, in the summer, the bay is a popular anchorage for visiting yachts and famous for it’s fortnight Sailing Regatta. Everyone can get out on the water: from Calum’s Seal Trips, one of the longest running and most well know boat trips in Scotland; to kayaking, sailing and rowing.

A National Trust for Scotland conservation village, Plockton has carefully preserved its heritage, while offering outstanding hospitality. There’s an excellent range of accommodation and the hotels and restaurants are famous for their seafood as well as live traditional music. Eating out there’s something for everyone: from fine dining to fish and chips on the harbour wall.

Popular with artists, Plockton is home to an art gallery and studio and there are regular exhibitions at the village hall. The village is also well served by a shop, post office and railway station.

And, just a 15-minute drive away, Kyle of Lochalsh has a full range of amenities and services and is the gateway to the Isle of Skye. Plockton is also just a few miles away from the famous "North Coast 500" route around the North and North West of Scotland. Why not get "offroute" and relax for a couple of days in idyllic surroundings?
