Plockton is considered one of the UK's most beautiful locations and enjoys a mild climate because of the Gulf Stream. Gaily painted cottages, lines of palm trees on the waterfront and a backdrop of stupendous wooded crags lend Plockton an exotic charm that is rarely found in Highland villages. Sheltered by a headland from the wind and open sea, the small community is located at the mouth of Loch Carron. There are un-spoilt sandy beaches on the seaward shore, reached only by footpaths, and a maze of narrow lanes explore the hinterland of forests, lochs, mountains and moors. Plockton developed as a herring port in the early 19th century and is now a haven for summer visitors including artists and yachtsmen. In 1973 the village was the location for the feature film The Wicker Man and in 1995 Plockton was chosen for the popular television series Hamish MacBeth.
The village itself has its own reputable primary and secondary schools and a good local village store that provides for everyday needs and requirements. Plockton village also has a number of inns, small hotels, restaurants and pubs. There are endless opportunities for outdoor pursuits which include hillwalking, sailing, golf and fishing with stalking and shooting also available on nearby estates. Moorings for boats are available in the bay. Nearby Plockton airstrip, built by the Royal Engineers in 1966, is available for use by private light aircraft. The village is also served by rail from Inverness. The Inverness to Kyle line was featured in a series by Michael Palin who stated that this was one of the most beautiful railway journeys in the world.
