Plockton is a beautiful village with all the amenities that you will require. The local bars and restaurants serve very good local produce, they also serve the local Ale that is brewed in Plockton. Traditional music is played in the bars through the week by local musicians.

The local beaches are only a Ten minute walk from the Sidings, the vews you will see from here are looking to the Isle of Skye.

There are boat trips out of plockton that will take you to see birds, seals and also dolphins and lots more wildlife.

Applecross is also a stunning place to visit. The drive over the Bealach is the highest road in Britain, The views from the top on a clear day are fantastic. When you come down the other side you will find the Applecross Inn. The food here is very good.
