This is a picture of a thatched cottage in Plockton. Plockton is a small Highland village located on the western seaboard surroudning a sheltered bay in Loch Carron. Most famous as the setting for the BBC television series Hamish MacBeth, this peaceful Highland community in the Gaelic heartland was once based on fishing and crofting. Regularly visited now by tourists and artists seeking inspiration.
This part of the picture collections of Scottish photographs shows the variety of the Scottish landscapes and natural features which make up the country of Scotland. There are further pictures which show such diverse topics as scottish castles to images of industrial landscapes.
This set of pictures were taken by the Young Enterprise group of Loudoun Academy in Ayrshire (2005-06) who sold them to this site as part of their project. The group were particularly successful and won their regional finals.
