Charming listed cottage for sale in famous Highlands location

Plockton is considered one of the most beautiful places in the UK. Sheltered by a headland from the wind and open sea, the small village sits at the mouth of Loch Carron, Ross-shire in the Highlands.

There are unspoilt sandy beaches on the seaward shore, reached by footpaths, and a maze of narrow lanes leading to forests, lochs, mountains and moors.

Plockton was developed as a herring port in the early 19th century and is now a haven for summer visitors.

It is also the star of the big and small screens – it was the location for the 1973 film The Wicker Man and the TV series Hamish MacBeth.
