Greetings from me to you, my readers!
A treat this month! A special photo of Duncan carvorting up on the Brae (thanks Rowan Sharp!)
I have a a self-catering flat available at Heron's Flight. I no longer offer Bed & Breakfast. Please contact me or see the Visit Plockton site for more information. My late husband's family home, 35 Harbour Street, is also available for self-catering holidays.
I have updated my news blog, 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.
I no longer offer Bed and Breakfast.
Please contact me if you would like to stay. .
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.
