We are an active couple in our mid 50s who were traveling with a dog so it was important our accommodation was dog friendly.
The Shed suited us perfectly. Don't let the thought of a shed put you off - it is cosy, compact, comfortably furnished with quality finishes and very snug and warm.
Booking was simple and straightforward and Lynn was very helpful, answering emails promptly.
The Shed is literally a converted shed or bothy but it has been converted into good quality accommodation for two in a clever and imaginative way.
For me the key to good accommodation is comfort and cleanliness and The Shed scored highly on both. The bed was a huge, built in, ships bunk style affair and very comfortable. The bed linens were neutral, crisp and smelled fresh and clean. The shower room is compact but functional and all you need with a great large illuminated mirror. The galley kitchen is quality Oak units and very well equipped. The lounge/dining area was fine for two and had a large TV and oak floors. It was practical and spotless throughout.
There was a lovely welcome tray and message and our hostess, Lynn was lovely.
Although The Shed has no views to speak of you don't need them as in 3 seconds from the door you are on the waterfront and for the rest of your time in the area you are surrounded by wonderful views. It's a 2min stroll to the Plockton Inn (our favourite) and 3 mins to the Plockton Hotel and the main drag. Don't miss the folk night at the Plockton Inn on a Tues/Thurs. A great experience plus they sell the Plockton Ale brewed at the microbrewery next door to The Shed - pure nectar - make sure you try a pint... or two!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return. As we are out and about a lot and travel light we can highly recommend The Shed, although as the stars to the mezzanine sleeping area are narrow and a bit steep and storage space is a bit limited it may not suit everyone.
We specifically needed wifi on this trip which made The Shed a good choice - I struggled with the Wi-Fi connection on my iPhone but we had no problems with the netbook.
All in all clean, cosy, comfortable and good value in a fab location - what more can you ask for? Thank you Lynn.
