I've been looking for a good quotation about vaccination. Can't find one, so here's one from me -
Get vaccinated as soon as you are given the opportunity!"

 Greetings in April 2021 to you my readers! I hope that you are safe, and well. And happy. And vaccinated, or in the process...
I will take bookings for my self-catering flat for periods after the beginning of July. 

I hope that COVID restrictions will have eased by then to allow  this. Fingers crossed!
Please contact me or see the Visit Plockton site for more information.

The family home, 35 Harbour Street, is not currently available for self-catering holidays.
I update my news blog from time to time
, with news of doings of Heron's Flight, me and my family. 

Have you seen the webcam in Plockton, set up by Calum Mackenzie of seal trip fame? Now read on, and stay well...Ann

Heron's Flight has a one-bedroom self-contained
for letting, usually for no less than a week. 
Please contact me if you would like to stay.
Availability will depend on the COVID-related
travel regulations in place..

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."
