Photographing Plockton

An awesome base for visiting to Skye and the Highlands

Way up in the North West Highlands of Scotland lies the picturesque village of Plockton.  Located only fifteen minutes from Kyle of Lochalsh, Plockton is a great little location for travelling around the Highlands - although I primarily used this quaint little harbour village as a base to visit the various spots around the Isle of Skye I wanted to shot.

That being said, Plockton is an awesome location for photography in its own right.  Its location on the shores of Loch Carron mean that it has gorgeous bay views, hillside viewpoints,  pretty harbour scenes (there are numerous small fishing boats and lobster creels around the bay), as well as hills and mountains that match almost any other location in Scotland.

Plockton is a great little location in its own right for photography.  There is so many varied locations to utilise, but combine this with easy access to Skye and its awesome locations, Plockton is an essential stop for photographers.
