The Plockton Hotel

Harbour Street, PLOCKTON, IV52 8TN

Set with the mountains on one side and the deep blue waters of Loch Carron on the other, this lovely village is well known for its white-washed cottages and, of all things, palm trees. Dating from 1827, this original black fronted building is thought to have been a ships' chandlery before it was converted to serve as the village inn. Run by Alan Pearson and Mags Pearson, the couple have inherited a successful legacy from Alan's parents who were in charge for two decades. The hotel specialises in seafood - including freshly landed fish and locally caught langoustines (mid afternoon you can watch the catch being landed) - supplemented by Highland steaks and locally reared beef. Lunchtime features light bites and toasted paninis, as well as a good range of hot dishes. Evening dishes might include Talisker whisky pâté; sweet pickled herring and prawns; or grilled goats' cheese with beetroot chutney to start, followed by Highland venison collops with Cumberland sauce; fillet of monkfish wrapped in bacon; chargrilled Aberdeen Angus steak with whisky sauce; or pan-fried medallions of pork with brandied apricots and cream sauce. Daily specials, written up on the blackboard, add to the tempting choices. There are four Scottish real ales on tap, and a fine range of malts is available to round off that perfect Highland day, perhaps accompanied by one of the 'basket' meals served every evening from 9pm-10pm - try the breaded scampi tails.
