Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very nice clean village on the water. Stopped and ate lunch here. Met a wonderful couple from Australia on their way to see Rugby world match in France in couple of more days. Had a wonderful visit on way to Isle of Skye

Plockton is a nice very little harbour village.
Nothing too fancy.
A restaurant, an ice-cream shop, a chippy and two or three other shops.
Nice and quiet if off season.
If you are in the area and have spare time it is worth a visit.

Once been there we would probably not go again.

What a beautiful little town! Would love to return for a few days of rest & relaxation! We enjoyed our seal trip with Calum!

We were excited to visit Plockton after reading several articles and reviews.

However, as we arrived in a motor home we were treated with much hostility from the locals and told we weren’t welcome in their village.

Our friends in their motor home were subjected to a similar experience from an entirely different person.

We were informed there was a sign saying no motor homes so did double back to check this, but we didn’t find it even after seeking it out.

From what we saw of Plockton I’d drive on by and visit Dornie and the magnificent Eilean Donan castle, much nicer welcome!

Plockton is very pretty, but the real place I was hoping to leave a review for is Rudha Mor Lilias's Garden, which are FREE to visit and situated down the far end of the village.

These gardens take around 45 minutes to wander around depending at the pace you'd like enjoy them, and they really do have everything - a private beach, woodland, moss covered terrain a wild flower meadow, stunning views along the loch, a view of the lighthouse. The walk is a little up and down, following a simple path in a circle, all of which only adds to the charm and mystery.

My parents and I couldn't believe that the gardens were free, we've paid far more for less loved gardens over the years! There is a donation box at the end of the walk which we were thankful for.

What an amazing 'best kept secret' Plockton has...

What a gorgeous little place this is. There is a car park, it takes either money or cards. It doesn’t cost a lot, just a few pounds and we’ll worth it, but my advice is, go before lunch as it does get very busy.
We walked through the village and sat watching the beautiful scenery, then had fish and chips at the Harbour fish bar just behind the car park. It’s mainly a takeaway, but does have a few seats inside and a couple of benches outside.

I am conscious of over using the word but the whole NW coast of Scotland IS stunning and the people (the Scottish people anyway) are charming and super friendly BUT Plockton Harbour is quite possibly THE most picturesque of them all. The single track approach road is not for the faint-hearted though and don’t even think about driving down in a motorhome.

Good to go to Plockton harbour for lunch or dinner at The Plockton Inn or Plockton Hotel. Also good to take Calum's seal tour boats from there.

We stayed at The Shed (at Seabank) on Bank Street and from our arrival on Saturday 26 March until our departure a week later we never tired of the views of Plockton Harbour. Sunrise to sunset the colours and shadows change to add to the dramatic effect.

Part of the attraction of visiting in low season was that the village was not overcrowded as it can become from Easter onwards. Also we were not there in the midge season thankfully!

Our dog enjoyed many a walk along Harbour Street and beyond, as well as a run on the beach when the tide was out. Even when it snowed on the Friday morning the harbour retained is idyllic beauty.

Travelled by train -- I walked downhill on the main road from Plockton rail station for about 12 minutes and arrived at the harbour. It's a very small village with scenic views of the loch. I went in autumn and was the only tourist around. Note that the public toilet is only open March to October. There are very few cafes and restaurants around so I think they can get quite crowded during peak season. Locals were very friendly, as in all Scottish villages and cities.

I think spending an hour here is just right. If travelling by train, make sure you check any train updates on your phone in case yours gets cancelled. There are no train station staff and no announcement boards.
