"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.”- Plato
“She had a strange feeling in the pit of her stomach, like when you're swimming and you want to put your feet down on something solid, but the water's deeper than you think and there's nothing there”" - Julia Gregson, East of the Sun
Greetings from me to you, my readers! What strange times we are living in! Last month, I asked "Does anyone have 2020 vision about this year???" Well, I don't think anyone could have predicted what is actually happening re the Corona Virus! Unfortunately, I will not be taking any bookings for my self-catering flat for the forseeable future. I'm sorry about this, but I'm sure you appreciate that this has been unavoidable. Please contact me or see the Visit Plockton site for more information.
The family home, 35 Harbour Street, is usually available for self-catering holidays - but not this year!!.
I update my news blog from time to time, with news of doings of Heron's Flight, me and my family.
Heron's Flight has a one-bedroom self-contained
flat for letting, usually for no less than a week.
Please contact me if you would like to stay.
However, I am not taking AN Y bookings
for the next few months of 2020.
The house is right on the water of Plockton Bay, with fabulous views of the beautiful and tranquil Loch Carron, Duncraig Castle, and the rest of the village of Plockton.
Plockton is an ideal base for day trips to the Isle of Skye, the NTS gardens at Inverewe, the Pictish Brochs at Glenelg, county town Dingwall, Applecross via Britain’s highest mountain pass – or for a scenic train journey to the Highland Capital, Inverness.
If you just want to stay in the village, it's lovely to wander along the shore or the main street, or take one of the short walks further afield, It's also a great place to
simply relax and do as little a possible!
There is often live traditional music in one of the hotels – they and the Shores Restaurant serve excellent food too. During the summer months, I strongly advise booking in advance for an evening meal as they are all very popular.
"You must come home with me and be my guest,
You will give joy to me, and I will do
All that is in my power to honour you."
Percy Bysshe Shelley, Hymn to Mercury.
