Additional Location Information

As noted above, PLOCKTON in the Western Highlands of Scotland must be the most scenic village in Scotland, and is a paradise for painters, photographers, hillwalkers, sailors and many others! It is situated in a sheltered corner on the shore of Loch Carron – so sheltered in fact, that visitors are astonished to see palm trees growing in the gardens there! Loch Carron is a sea loch (fjiord) which opens onto the Isle of Skye’s ‘Inner Sound’.

Drumbeg, 19 Harbour Street, is one of the original village houses built in 1860s. It is on the main street in the centre of the village with spectacular views across Loch Carron to Duncraig Castle and the awesome ‘Crags’ above. The name Plockton comes from the Gaelic word “Ploc” meaning a promontory and “ton” – a small population centre. Plockton’s population is about 325 in the winter to about three times that in the summer.

Duncraig Castle is a young castle by Scottish standards – built in the 1860’s by one of the Mathieson family of the Hongkong’s shipping and trading firm Jardine Mathieson – where it had a historically had a significant role in the Far East opium trade! It was a ‘stately home’ until WWII when it became a naval hospital, and thereafter for many years it was a domestic science college for west highland ladies. It is now a bed & breakfast facility.

Plockton is an excellent centre for exploring the Isle of Skye and the western highlands, from Knoydart to Torridon and Inverness to the outer islands. The local community is vibrant and energetic, and visitors will find truly warm west highland welcome awaiting them. The late July- early August Plockton Sailing Regatta ~ the ‘Whisky Olympics’ brings Plockton sailors, aficionados and their families from all over the world.
