Number 7 Harbour Street is set in the heart of Plockton, which is a National Trust Village, on the north west coast of Scotland about 7 miles from the bridge to the Isle of Skye.  The house is on the main lane of this village, facing a small bay that opens out onto the shores of Loch Carron and the North Sea.  Plockton was built as a model village for the Scottish Highlands in the 1930s.  Number 7 has a large hillside terrace and pine garden to the back of the house where guests can hold private barbeques, and a picturesque flowering garden to the front, with open views over the bay. All three bedrooms and the living room have beautiful views to the front of the cottage, facing the sea and the cliffs across the bay.

The house was recently re-built using the original foundations and walls of the crofters cottage that was built over 150 years ago. The design of the house is open plan and has been built to maximise the views over the loch and over the back garden.   The cottage has one double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and two twin rooms.  The mezzanine layout of the cottage provides:

  • two twin rooms and a shared bathroom on the ground floor
  • the open plan kitchen and dining room and conservatory on the mezzanine level with floor to ceiling glass windows opening out onto the alpine garden terrace at the back
  • the living room and master bedroom on the second floor overlooking the front garden and sea

The back garden is landscaped with two grass terraces and a rock garden of alpines and heathers.  The back garden can be lit up at night with the outdoor spotlights although some parts have been left in shade to protect the pine martin and forest creatures that live in the old logs and undergrowth at the top of the hill.  There is a picnic table and barbeque facilities for eating and entertaining outside.

The living room has been located to maximize the views over Obanduine Bay, and is designed with traditional exposed pine beams and an open gas fire. The dining area on the mezzanine floor has solid Scottish oak timber floors and boasts a 4.6 metre wide rear glazed elevation looking out over the patio and rear garden. Leading from the kitchen is a sun room with glazed roof, made with solid Scottish oak timber floor and views over the alpine garden at the back - an ideal place to start off the early evening with a relaxing drink before dinner.
