The picturesque village of Plockton offers a slice of paradise in the Scottish Highlands. Located on the banks of Loch Carron, Plockton - with its palm trees and mild climate - is a stunning place for a cottage holiday at any time of year.
Thanks to its sheltered aspect, Plockton experiences above average temperatures, making it ideal for those weary of Scotland's infamous cold weather. The village hugs the shores of Loch Carron, and its white-washed houses, coupled with its Highland backdrop, make Plockton a sight to behold.
