  • Plockton and District Community Council met recently in Plockton Hall.  among the items discussed were the continuing absence of white lines on Plockton roads; the return of the free-roaming cows to the village, which has caused anger from residents and has still not been resolved (the community council is to meet with the crofters and the National Trust to discuss the problem); no grass cutting has been done in the village this summer; parking on Harbour Street is still a problem, especially with the increase of camper van numbers, with the only solution being an extension to the existing car park; a donation of £250 was agreed in principle to the village play park; the telephone kiosk at Plockton High School is being removed by BT – the community council decided not to object; and the present council had its final meeting on Monday, after which all the members stood down.
