On Thursday 31 May when the Church was thinking about Our Lady travelling to see her cousin Elizabeth on foot, I went to the lovely fishing village of Plockton by train! Plockton is on the North Highlands line between Inverness and Kyle of Lochalsh.
The Kyle line has been likened to a symphony in three parts: pastoral, mountain, and marine. This photo shows my train leaving the station for the final part of it's journey to Kyle. This lovely little station is rather different to Clapham Junction!
One can see Plockton village from the line. A pretty palm-tree lined village of yachts anchored in the shelter of its beautiful bay, which was the location for the BBC's drama series 'Hamish Macbeth'.
