So looked forward to our well deserved holiday. After unloading of food & luggage in large beach cottage, (to which you need to cross a rail track & steep stoney steps not suitable for disabled persons) we decided to eat out in Plockton to which there is the BEST fish & chip shop in Harbour st. Highly recommend 4X4 vehicles only to use track down to parking area for beach cottages, our vehicle had its front tyre shredded on our first day there by using the track back up to main road. Park at the entrance to Craig Farm and save yourself the expense of replacing a tyre.
Pine Martin is a frequent visitor if you leave any food out on the windowsill, he is particulary keen on homemade curry, fish n chips, bread, tatties, rice, hotdogs etc. Disappointed with the accommodation, broken scissors, broken light on stairs, toilet handle very temperamental, brown water in bathroom, cups chipped, glass cracked, doors don't close properly, no lock on bathroom and very temperamental shower, cold water tap in bathroom very stiff to work, leaking tiles in bathroom causes drips in livingroom beam and your expected to dispose of all your rubbish/recycling yourself. We felt that all of these problems are being overlooked in order that the location itself sells the holiday. Our little girl fell badly on the ground because of rough road, surely a bit of money could be invested in order to fix the road. We paid very good money for the week and were disappointed with the standard of cottage when these problems could quite easily be fixed. Needs a little TLC. The farm animals are a delight to watch and feed, especially Elvis the Peacock, who loves to show off. There is a good selection of books, dvd's, videos, but poor mobile phone coverage.
