Plockton beach

Season: summer

The village of Plockton is one of the tourist magnets in the Highlands, both attractive and a sheltered haven for passing yachts.  There’s an up-market feel during the summer season.  The beach here is known as Coral Beach and can be found a mile or so outside the village.  It’s well worth the walk, to find a peaceful strand, with its surface made of dried, calcified seaweed, known as maerl.  The nature here is pristine and the beach has a tranquil atmosphere.  Highly recommended.
