Plockton became famous as the location for the TV series Hamish Macbeth. This seaside village with its main street lined with palm trees and whitewashed houses seems like the perfect location for a film shoot. It seems that wherever you are in Plockton, there is always a harbor view. There is also a small, protected bay speckled with islets and hemmed in by vast green mountains. There are a number of options for places to stay here, including the Plockton Hotel, one of town’s best. The waterfront views from every room are excellent, and the garden is well kept and secluded. For picnics, locals like to frequent Shores Buttery to pick up snacks and sandwiches. You can also eat in and enjoy the beautiful ocean views.
