What to See and Do in Plockton
Seal Watching with Calum

You can't visit Plockton without experiencing the Seal watching trip!  Apart from the fact that the trip is free if you don't see any seals, it is excellent value for money when you do see them.  

Calum is the owner of the boat and will keep you entertained throughout the trip with his "patter" - he's what is know as a "real character"!

Calum will also provide you with lots of information about the wild life that you will see and the local history, as he takes you round Loch Carron.  

Trips are available daily at:

  • 10am
  • 12 noon
  • 2pm
  • 4pm

Be aware that there are two piers that the trip can leave from, check out the information at either pier or the Gift shop to see where the next tour will leave. 

The boat has an on-board toilet and there are also refreshments available.
