Very comfortable and well equipped house in the gorgeous village of Plockton. Thomas and Julie left a great welcome pack including their excellent homemade jam. 10 min walk to the sea front where there are several good places to eat and there are lots of good walks from the house too. Our dog loved it. It's a great location to explore the wider area with easy access to Skye, the Applecross peninsular and much more. We will visit again.
Our 3rd trip to Plockton, but first time with our little girl, so decided to rent somewhere for the week rather than one of the hotels. The Sidings was a great home from home. Well equipped, clean and comfortable, and the welcome pack was a really nice touch. The house is in a handy location, and we enjoyed walking down to the village and exploring. It was so quiet at night, even with the windows open (we had some really good weather, hit 30C one day!). Our daughter loved seeing the trains go past the window. We were all sad to leave after a great week, but we will be back!
This house is perfect for a base in the Highlands. It’s a 15 min walk into the lovely village of Plockton & close to Kyle & Skye.
The house is extremely well equipped with all cooking utensils & extremely cosy. It’s out of the village but close enough to walk in, only 15 minutes. The house is perfect for a base for people wanting either a base to tour around the Highlands or a Chilaxing holiday.
Thomas & Julie couldn’t be more helpful & the welcome pack is a brilliant extra.
I can not recommend this more highly as a house to rent, we had a fabulous fortnight.
Cosy cottage in peaceful location with a lovely fire for when the weather is being a bit "Scottish". Easy walk to the stunning coral beach and only a short drive to Skye and the amenities in Kyle of Localsh. The train passing proved quite an attraction but the highlight has to have been our visit from the pine marten!
Thankyou Thomas & Julie for a fabulous stay in your Plockton home .......the village is absolutely gorgeous & many a photo was taken !!.......it is a stunning area & your property was the perfect retreat after touring around ....every need was catered for .
Enjoyed food in the Plockton Inn & Plockton Shores .........Scottish Gins in The Plockton Hotel & more Scottish Gin Tasting !!!! at no 12 Harbour Street. ......which is a Cafe & off licence ........the Croft cafe in nearby village Duirinish ( a new business ) is worth supporting too ......look out for the Highland cows !!
Applecross Inn is a must do too !!
As is an easy trip to Isle of Skye !!
Inverewe gardens another good day trip from Plockton
Also would recommend the Glenelg Inn for food & atmosphere .....you can then take a trip on the Glenelg to Skye ferry !!!
A trip on the Kyle line ( railway ) may interest future guests
