No 26 Harbour Street is in a delightful setting in Plockton in Wester Ross. The property comprises a handsome, traditional, family-sized house with beautiful gardens, off-street parking and garage. At the end of a single track road and with stunning views over Loch Carron, this 19th century former fishing village is charming; its main street and lanes meandering between terraces of old fishing cottages. The village has been designated a National Trust for Scotland conservation village to preserve its heritage and today draws visitors from all over the world.The west coast of Scotland is famous for its spectacular coastline of sheltered bays, wide sandy beaches and beautiful island views with a backdrop of dramatic mountain peaks. The region has long been a popular tourist destination due to its mild climate, unspoilt scenery and romantic history and yet, just a short distance away from the busy tourist centres, the countryside offers a haven of peace where native wildlife and flora are plentiful and breathtaking views are the norm.Plockton has a small supermarket, a good range of hotels and restaurants, a railway station and schooling up to secondary level as well as its well-known music academy. Kyle of Lochalsh, where the bridge crosses to Skye, offers a good range of shops and amenities, while Inverness, about 2 hours’ drive away, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe.No 26 Harbour Street has sensitively modernised, generous accommodation, retaining much of the character and many of the features of the original house. The property has a two storey extension to the rear and this offers the potential, subject to the necessary consents, to create separate letting accommodation.The current owner purchased the property in 2019 and since then has redecorated, replaced the white goods and installed new garage doors as well as carrying out regular maintenance. With the exception of a few personal items, the house is to be sold as seen.
