    Take a walk

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are anywhere near Plockton, take the time to visit. It isn't far from the famous Eilean Donan castle and the drive is lovely. Actually the entire area is lovely. I can imagine it becoming full of tourists in the summer, but even then there is enough wild space that you could have your peace and quiet. The Plockton Hotel even has a picnic area right on the loch so you can get your lunch and enjoy the fresh air.

    Take the time to walk the entire main street. It's not long and definitely worth the walk. There are souvenir shops at one end and a fishing village at the other. We were there in May and the trees were blooming as were the azaleas and rhododendrons. Add the bright flowers to the dark cloudy sky and bright blue water and you will want to paint even if you've never picked up a brush. is a useful web site in general. For specific web sites, see below.

    see the seals

    if you like to see wildlife, and scenery, then hop on board the MV Argus, a boat that will take you out to see seals, and sometimes dolphins, birds etc. The boat holds 50 people, so plenty room on board, and also has a bar and a toilet on board.
    Spectacular scenery can be seen from the boat, from Plockton bay to the Cuillins of Skye.

    Wandering around Plockton

    The harbor area in Plockton, with its sheltered bay, is a very cool place to poke around. On the ocean side of Plockton to the west, you can walk down to the beach to take in a great sunset. I found some purple heather blooming there.

    You are bound to see the Highland cattle in various locations. These we spotted on the road leaving Plockton.
