“Fabulous, relaxing, scenic, amazing!”
Reviewed 16 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The Sidings was excellent! Julie and Thomas made us very welcome indeed, with a welcome basket, clean linens and towels and a real home from home feel.
The working coal fire in the living room was a bonus, as was the ice-maker in the fridge/freezer.
We travelled all over Skye and around Plockton and the views and scenery were fabulous! We will definitely go back - and we will definitely stay at The Sidings again!

“The Sidings was ideal!”

We chose Plockton and specifically The Sidings for a week long stay based on positive reviews. We were not disappointed! We were a 3 generation family of 6 and the Sidings provided us with a spotlessly clean, charming and comfortable place to base ourselves and explore the Highlands and Skye for a week. I was a little concerned about just one bathroom, but that proved not to be a problem. When we arrived, there was a welcome basket from our hosts, Thomas & Julie which we really enjoyed. The cottage was stocked with everything we needed. Thank you so much Thomas & Julie for helping to make our adventures in Scotland wonderful!

“Very comfortable cottage in idyllic village”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The Sidings, as its name suggests is right next to Plockton railway station & line. The 6.38 train from Kyle of Lochalsh serves as an alarm clock, in a very good way. There is plenty to get up for in Plockton and the surrounding Lochalsh area.
The Sidings is a very comfortable and well equipped holiday cottage. It has everything needed for a family holiday.
It is a 15 minute walk down to the beautiful village and uphill on the way back, but that just helps to burn off the calories from the excellent food to be found in the 3 hotels/restaurants.
We would love to have stayed longer.

“Couldn't have been better for us”
Reviewed 11 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!
