The National Trust village of Plockton, a few miles north of Kyle of Lochalsh, is surely, with its palm fringed lochside street, one of the most picturesque villages in Scotland.
Here, just across the narrow road from the loch, is 7 Harbour Street, a charming traditional house which has now been fabulously extended and refurbished to create the most comfortable and stylish of holiday homes with a front garden abutting the shore.
The house is on three levels. The open plan dining kitchen on the mezzanine has floor to ceiling windows opening to the alpine terrace garden behind, and the upstairs sitting room and master bedroom have wonderful views of the bay.
Plockton has some excellent little shops and eating places. Its welcoming harbour offers boat and fishing trips, sailing courses etc. It is also a splendid centre for exploring Skye, Torridon, Applecross and places north.
