“Couldn't have been better for us”
Reviewed 10 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Chose the Sidings due to proximity of station.( we didn't have a car) and it worked out better than we could have expected. Lovely, well equipped cosy cottage, lacked nothing. We were also greeted with a welcome pack with food and a bottle of wine! We had very poor weather but managed to cheer ourselves up with coal fires in the evening and warm, well equipped place to stay. Thomas and Julie very helpful We were met at the station and when one of our party could not get into her case, (lost padlock key!) Thomas was straight over with wire cutters and a smile.
Thanks for a lovely week. We can't blame the rain on Plockton. It is the most wonderful spot!
PS The train journey from Inverness to Plockton was a real treat. Thanks Michael Portillo for your TV train journey programme!

“Great Base for Highland Exploration”

First time we have stayed at The Sidings, but won't be the last. Very well appointed cottage, very clean and extremely quite.Owners are accomodating and we were pleasantly surprised by the ample "welcome pack". Evenings spent by the roaring coal fire were most enjoyable. Plockton Inn with its great seafood only a short 5 minute walk.
A great base for our cycling adventures, only spoilt by the torrential downpours on Sunday !! Many thanks and see you next year.

“Superb”
Reviewed 7 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

The Sidings is a superb holiday rental cottage. It is very cosy and immaculately clean. Every possible thing you could need on a breakaway has been thought of! The very generous welcome basket was full of tasty goodies – it sums up the amount of care and effort the owners put into this cottage.
We hope to return very soon!

“Absolutely Fantastic! - Cant wait to return, have already booked another stay!!”
Reviewed 2 May 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We had an abosolutely amazing holiday at The Sidings! The house is located in a quiet street a short walk from the main centre of the village. Booking was a breeze and the owners were fantastic to deal with. The house was spotless and had everything we needed to really enjoy our holiday. The living room was cosy and welcoming (a great place to sit and relax after a day out walking) and the kitchen/ dining room was well laid out and had everything you could possible need. I cant recommend The Sidings enough and we have already booked to come and stay again later in the year!

Plockton is a great holiday destination and we cant wait to return! The village is simply breathtaking, with the water lapping up against the gardens and the palm trees it is a photographers dream. There are lots of nice walks around the village itself especially coral beach (which was only minutes from our cottage and was like being in the med!) and the walk around the point at rhu-more. For the more adventurous walker, Skye and the Cuillins are only 20 mins away and the five sisters about 45 mins. On one of the days we went across to Applecross which was really good (although the road to get there is a bit scary if you dont like heights!!)

The weather was gorgeous when we were there and we hope we get more of the same when we return.
