I’ve been coming to Plockton since I was a baby, as my Granny owned the hotel. The doors of all the houses used to be left open, and I knew who lived behind each one. Even when I was little, the beautiful gem like colours, which each household chose to paint their windows and doors, delighted me. Some parts of the village are very vibrant and bright, while others are more subtle pastels. But it was the sheer mix and variety which pleased my eye so much, and fired my imagination. I’ve chosen some of the more vibrant runs of houses for this colourful rainbow post.
I think the primary rainbow colours take me back to childhood, and a love of bright colour. It’s as though we’ve taken a box of crayons and coloured in the doors and windows, just as the fancy took us. Just like spring flowers bursting out in vivid splashes, these colourful streets bring a smile to my lips and lift my spirits.
