    Luggage and bags: whatever suits is fine

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: it may look nice, being on the gulf stream and having palm trees and all, but warm clothes, walking boots, and waterproofs are a must. anything else is fine, but don't leave home without those 3 important things!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring whatever you need, but if you run short of anything, Plockton Stores has a range of basic items, and for anything that they don't have, you can buy at the Chemist in Kyle.

    Photo Equipment: If you have a camera then bring it, because you will regret it if you dont. The local shop and Hidden Treasures (when open) sell disposable cameras.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: There is no campsite In plockton anymore. There used to be one, but is now turned into Plockton Cottages, and is not very well sign posted till you get to Plockton which doesn't do anyone any favours. There is a campsite in Balmacara which is about 7 miles away, if you are coming to Plockton from anwhere but Skye or Kyle you will pass Balmacara. There is a beach, which is nice, but its no Bondi Beach!

    Miscellaneous: Dont forget midge repellant. Mosquito repellant will do, but up in the north west highlands of Scotland, we have midges which are very small and very annoying.
