Harbour St., Plockton

Plockton was a planned village created by Sir Hugh Innes to provide homes for some of his cleared tenants. The Lochalsh Estate was bought by Sir Alexander Matheson in the 1850s and Duncraig Castle built overlooking the bay. On the opposite side of the bay are the buildings, making up Harbour St. in Plockton, which curves along the shore. The Plockton Hotel, with its distinctive black and white paintwork, is in the foreground. The children and their mother pictured may well be the photographer's family, Margaret Macpherson, Neil and Mary, who often accompanied Duncan Macpherson on his excursions from Kyle of Lochalsh.
