Refurbished to a very high standard, Parth-Galen lies in a hamlet enjoying spectacular views over the west coast to the Isle of Skye and Raasay. One of a pair, it is set in a large garden with many woodland walks from the door and a sea loch close by, and is perfect for a quiet relaxing break or as a base to enjoy wonderful scenery and exhilarating outdoor pursuits. For the more active, sailing, kayaking, mountain biking, fishing and hill walking are particularly popular with Torridon and Kintail only a short journey away. There are many fine low level and coastal walks in the area where otters and birdlife can be spotted and the local sandy beaches are fantastic.
Plockton is a picturesque village on the shore of Loch Carron with many shops, galleries and fabulous eateries with especially good fresh fish, and is regarded by many as the most attractive village in the West Highlands.
Locally landed seafood and Plockton brewed ale can be enjoyed all year round in several nearby inns and restaurants.
Plockton is an area with interests for everyone, and is also a popular destination for visitors in the summer months, particularly during its long established, small boat sailing regatta fortnight in August, but is quiet through the rest of the year.
Visitors can enjoy the romantic Eilean Donan Castle, the Lochalsh Woodland Garden at Balmacara maintained by the National Trust, or the remote coastal settlement of Applecross reached by a memorable journey over the highest road in Scotland. At nearby Kyle of Lochalsh is the bridge over to the beautiful Isle of Skye which boasts spectacular mountain, cliff and seascapes and some unique geological formations. From there, take a boat trip to spot seals, dolphins or whales or to visit the elusive and magical Loch Coruisk in the heart of the Cuillin mountains. Visit the Talisker Distillery or one of the many artist studios or enjoy a meal at the world famous Three Chimneys restaurant. Swim and picnic at the enchanting Fairy Pools. An idyllic holiday base. Shops and pub 1½ miles.
