Plockton

Plockton is a lovely village on the shores of Loch Carron, in the Ross and Cromarty area of the Scottish Highlands.

Its appearance may be familiar to some due to it being used in the filming of the TV series of Hamish Macbeth.

Despite its small population and remoteness it is served by a railway. The Inverness-Kyle of Lochalsh line.

Duncraig Castle is on the far shore. The castle has its own railway station! (I believe the owner would only allow the railway to be built across his land with that as a proviso):-
