We were so happy to be shown to our beautiful room at the Captain's House in Plockton and to find that, despite being just off the main street, that through one of the 2 windows we had a lovely view of the bay. The room itself was furnished with antique furniture and full of interesting books and pictures which were quite clearly the personal belongings of a sea captain. A powder horn with a twist of paper as a plug still smelling of gun powder, and the ship's wages book detailing the wages and outgoings of all men on board from a voyage to Australia in the1880s evoked the past and added to our enjoyment. I've since found out that the house is over 200 years old, built by Captain Duncan Finlayson, who owned and constructed schooners.
Breakfast was delicious and the atmosphere was light and relaxing, and the owner very approachable and good fun. I would highly recommend a visit to Plockton and especially to the Captain's House.
