“The Sidings” is situated in a row of 40-year-old cottages, adjacent to Plockton station. It is a very comfortable, cosy home. It is particularly handy for spectacular walks to the beaches close by. Locals and visitors have been known to swim their even in September. The house is a 5-10 minute walk from the centre of Plockton with gorgeous views of the Crags towering over the village. There are very good eating places that serve local seafood and other local produce. The house consists of a spacious dining kitchen, a warm living room with reclaimed Victorian fireplace. Outside there is a small back garden with a leafy green outlook and a larger front garden with a picnic bench that in the past the owners, Thomas and Julie, have enjoyed early evening drinks and family barbecues.
