A holiday cottage in the 'Jewel of the Highlands', Plockton
A Highland settlement on the quiet shores of Loch Carron, Plockton is the quintessential Scottish town served by its very own train station, church, general stores, and pubs. Explore it at leisure with a Plockton cottages or other self-catering accommodations as your base.
Plockton's culinary scene pleases all tastes and budgets. Pick from fine dining restaurants on the waterfront, or the unassuming fish and chip stand on the marina. Either way, you'll be savouring the freshest Highland produce. The mobile fish and chip van, Shonzeys, serves fresh fish (cod, salmon, squid, crabs, and more) with delicious housemade dips and chips.
The long-established Harbour Fish Bar is a traditional fish & chip takeaway establishment that serves delectable whipped ice cream, coffees, and vegetarian fare as well. Alternatively, check out some of the area's pubs, which have live music in season time to keep diners entertained. You could also enjoy a meal with fabulous views of Loch Carron at Plockton Shores Restaurant, run by amiable locals Anne and James.
