Holiday Rental House
Nestled above the village of Plockton with the Cuillin of Skye as a backdrop 'Off the Rails' at Pockton Station offers a truly unique holiday experience providing all the discerning holidaymaker could be looking for. Built in 1887 on the famous Inverness to Kyle line, Plockton is a working but unmanned station. The station building has been tastefully refurbished preserving wonderful Victorian features and architecture but rewired with all the technology guests have come to expect, such as complimentary wireless broadband, LCD televisions, DVD players and a music system with iPod docking station. The main bedroom sleeps two but the other bedroom can accommodate two in a kingsize bed but this can be changed into twin beds sleeping two and there is also a single sofa bed in this room....Nestled above the village of Plockton with the Cuillin of Skye as a backdrop 'Off the Rails' at Pockton Station offers a truly unique holiday experience providing all the discerning holidaymaker could be looking for.

About the neighbourhood
'Off the Rails' is an ideal place to explore some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland, or while away some time in Plockton, known as the' jewel of the Highlands'. You can relax in the lounge, which was formerly the Station Ticket Office, with its Victorian open hearth fire, or on warmer days sit out on the platform, enjoy the sun and watch the trains go by. The station is conveniently situated for touring the local area, being just 15 minutes from the Kyle of Lochalsh, gateway to the magical Isle of Skye, or just 20 minutes to Eilean Donan castle at Dornie, one of Scotland's finest castles. Further afield on the mainland is Glenelg with its Iron Age brochs, or just a few miles further on, Sandaig, long time home to Gavin Maxwell, author of 'Ring of Bright Water'. This is a magica...
