Vacation Home Rental Description:



PLOCKTON in the Western Highlands of Scotland must be the most scenic village in Scotland, and it is a paradise for painters, photographers, hillwalkers, sailors and many others! It is situated in a sheltered corner on the shore of Loch Carron – so sheltered in fact, that visitors are astonished to see palm trees growing in the gardens there! Loch Carron is a sea loch (fjiord) which opens onto the Isle of Skye’s ‘Inner Sound’.

Drumbeg, 19 Harbour St., Plockton is an1860s terraced house with four bedrooms and sleeps eight or nine adults. A downstairs bedroom has a double bed, and of the three upstairs bedrooms, one has a double bed and the others twin beds. Additionally there is a ‘fold away’ bed and two children’s cots. Duvet covers are provided but we prefer guests to bring their own together with their own pillowslips, sheets and towels although these can be provided by arrangement.

The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine/dryer and other small electrical appliances. A BBQ is in the garage, together with the tools and garden chairs and there are picnic tables in both the front and back gardens. There is a toilet/bathroom downstairs and a toilet/shower upstairs. The house is heated with storage heaters and there is an open coal fire and electric heaters. There are two (or three?) video players, two flat screen televisions, plenty radios and a multitude of books. (If you take a book, please leave one!).

A pre-pay coin phone is provided, and there is a telephone kiosk (bright red, traditional) just across the road. Mobile phones get excellent reception and broadband Wifi is available so bring a laptop. At the rear of the house there is a large conservatory, set up as a dining area.
In the shed/garage there is an extra toilet and wash basin – very handy when there are a lot of guests – or kids, or if you are having a BBQ! Also in the shed is a child’s push chair should you need it. Private parking is available at the side or behind the house.

Our caretaker Jan lives nearby and will be available to answer your questions regarding the house or the area. She can arrange to have coal delivered, find a reliable baby sitter, or have basic groceries delivered from the local shop should you plan to arrive late in the evening!

You may be interested to know that the house is the UK home of the owners Alan Burrell (a Scot) and Khin Soe Tin (aka Suzie) who is Burmese. We live most of the year in Manila, Philippines running our ‘villa rental & yacht charter’ business at a beach area called ‘Puerto Galera’, and spend July and August at home in Plockton. We hope that you will find No. 19 more of a comfortable ‘home-from-home’ rather than a ‘commercial letting property’!

PLEASE NOTE THAT DRUMBEG IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR RENT DURING THE MONTHS OF JULY AND AUGUST DURING WHICH PERIOD IT IS USED BY THE OWNERS.THE REST OF THE YEAR IT IS AVAILABLE.

Notes:

PLOCKTON in the Western Highlands of Scotland must be the most scenic village in Scotland, and is a paradise for painters, photographers, hillwalkers, sailors and many others! It is situated in a sheltered corner on the shore of Loch Carron – so sheltered in fact, that visitors are astonished to see palm trees growing in the gardens there! Loch Carron is a sea loch (fjiord) which opens onto the Isle of Skye’s ‘Inner Sound’.

Drumbeg, 19 Harbour Street, is one of the original village houses built in 1860s. It is on the main street in the centre of the village with spectacular views across Loch Carron to Duncraig Castle and the awesome ‘Crags’ above. The name Plockton comes from the Gaelic word “Ploc” meaning a promontory and “ton” – a small population centre. Plockton’s population is about 325 in the winter to about three times that in the summer.

Duncraig Castle is a young castle by Scottish standards – built in the 1860’s by one of the Mathieson family of the Hongkong’s shipping and trading firm Jardine Mathieson – where it had a historically had a significant role in the Far East opium trade! It was a ‘stately home’ until WWII when it became a naval hospital, and thereafter for many years it was a domestic science college for west highland ladies. It is now a bed & breakfast facility.

Plockton is an excellent centre for exploring the Isle of Skye and the western highlands, from Knoydart to Torridon and Inverness to the outer islands. The local community is vibrant and energetic, and visitors will find truly warm west highland welcome awaiting them. The late July- early August Plockton Sailing Regatta ~ the ‘Whisky Olympics’ brings Plockton sailors, aficionados and their families from all over the world.
