    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    Nestled above the village of Plockton with the Cuillin of Skye as a backdrop 'Off the Rails' at Pockton Station offers a truly unique holiday experience providing all the discerning holidaymaker could be looking for.
    Built in 1887 on the famous Inverness to Kyle line, Plockton is a working but unmanned station. The station building has been tastefully refurbished preserving wonderful Victorian features and architecture but rewired with all the technology guests have come to expect, such as complimentary wireless broadband, LCD televisions, DVD players and a music system with iPod docking station.

    Additional Location Information
    'Off the Rails' is an ideal place to explore some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland, or while away some time in Plockton, known as the' jewel of the Highlands'. You can relax in the lounge, which was formerly the Station Ticket Office, with its Victorian open hearth fire, or on warmer days sit out on the platform, enjoy the sun and watch the trains go by.
    The station is conveniently situated for touring the local area, being just 15 minutes from the Kyle of Lochalsh, gateway to the magical Isle of Skye, or just 20 minutes to Eilean Donan castle at Dornie, one of Scotland's finest castles. Further afield on the mainland is Glenelg with its Iron Age brochs, or just a few miles further on, Sandaig, long time home to Gavin Maxwell, author of 'Ring of Bright Water'. This is a magical area that can be reached by the Mam Ratagan pass or travel via the Skye Bridge and the Skye Ferry from Kylerhea to Glenelg.
    For the more adventurous there are walks for al...

Friends of ours from Australia were over on vacation, and wanted to see some of Scotland's best scenery. Good friends of ours from Fife suggested that we should contact Calum and Jane who have a B & B in Plockton. In addition they have "Off the Rails" which, as the name implies, is an outstanding conversion of Plockton station to... more

We have stayed here twice and will be back again soon. Plockton is beautiful, always. The Plockton Station is excellent; very comfortable with great individual character and everything you need.. The ensuite shower room with sauna is a real bonus if the weather is dodgy. There are great walks straight from the door without needing to get in the car...

This place is the town's rail station house, converted to a vacation rental. It is STILL an active station and people come and go right outside your windows. We are train lovers and really enjoyed watching them come through, just made sure the windows were covered when we wanted privacy (no trains at night) We really enjoyed seeing the Royal... more
