Plockton, Ross and Cromarty, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
Built in the 1800s, Plockton Rhu Cottage was originally a cooperage providing barrels for the Plockton fishing trade. Later in that century an upper floor was added making it a typical ‘one and a half storey’ traditional Highland cottage. Now refurbished, it still retains its original character, providing a cosy and relaxing village retreat away from bustle and hubbub.

The Lounge, Kitchen/Diner and the windows in both Bedrooms all face the beautiful sea loch that is Loch Carron. Whether sitting outside - or in the porch with a cup of tea or a glass of wine in inclement weather - you are assured of magnificent views across the garden and open grassland to Plockton Bay, Duncraig Castle and the Plockton Crags.

Plockton Village, known as ‘The Jewel of the Highlands’, is the perfect base to stay, being ideal for walking, hill climbing, photo...

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this cottage with absolutely stunning views. Could have stayed staring out the window all day. It is very clean and comfortable. The owners are lovely and very knowledgeable about the area. Everyone in town is very friendly. You must eat at the Plockton Inn as the food is reasonable and delicious but be warned you...

Spotlessly clean two bedroom cottage with the loch just outside your door and a short walk into the centre of the beautiful village of Plockton. Pubs and restaurants for food and drink or stay at home to self cater using the well fitted kitchen and ample living space in and around the cottage. As long as you are not intent...
