Plockton and Loch Carron

Plockton is seen on the left of the photograph with Loch Carron in the background, and the distinctive hill Bad a Chreamha in the distance. Plockton was laid out as a modern village in about 1794 for Lord Seaforth. The new owner of the estate in 1801, Sir Hugh Innes, provided homes for his cleared tenants here, who derived their main income from shipbuilding and fishing for many years. The village is well known for the mild climate brought on by the flow of the Gulf Stream, which allows palm trees to flourish along the main street. It was also the setting for the popular BBC Television series 'Hamish Macbeth'
