    Hamish Macbeth is being re-run on ITV 3 !! I know it was filmed in Plockton and have just had a peep on Google Earth !:Cool:

    Lo and behold there is a MH on the main car park !!:Cool:

    Is overnighting permitted, and has anyone done so ?

    We have West Highland Terrier, would that get us any parking Brownie points.:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Overnighting used to be allowed. Unfortunately they don't even like us parking up during the day now :(

    We went a few years ago in the MH after visiting several times by car, we were extremely disappointed by the attitude we found and couldn't even stop for lunch. There's a nice site just down the coast at Balmacara though.

    It's a real shame about Plockton, such a lovely little village with great food and amazing scenery.

    When did you do this, maybe they've changed their rules since we last tried?

    Thanks, we'll have to give it another try. I've just looked on Google maps and i see that they've changed the sign since we were there:
