Drumbuie is a pretty and friendly crofting village surrounded by natural woodland and there is an abundance of birdlife and wildlife to be seen, and yet is close to excellent local services. The famous and popular village of Plockton is some 3 miles away and offers shops, hotels and restaurants as well as both primary and secondary schooling. Enhanced facilities are available in the larger village of Kyle of Lochalsh some 3 miles away and here you will find full amenities you would expect of a thriving area including a supermarket, petrol station, banks, selection of small shops, hotels and restaurants and with facilities of dentists, medical centre, leisure pool and gym. From Kyle a regular bus and train service operates and the train passes through and stops at Duirinish station, which is approximately ½ a mile away from Portcam, therefore making connections easier to Kyle and to Inverness the capital of the Highlands, which is approximately 80 miles to the east. The Skye Bridge which connects the mainland to the Isle of Skye is also located in Kyle and provides easy access to the island and all the places of interest it has to offer. Drumbuie village is well positioned to take advantage of the beauty the area has to offer with many mountain, hill and coastal walks available right on the doorstep. For water enthusiasts the shore is within easy reach and there are several bays in the locality including the beach at Drumbuie approximately 1/2 mile away.
