SCOTLAND – Plockton church sale sparks potential local bid war

A CHURCH in a Wester Ross village made famous by the TV series Hamish Macbeth and cult film The Wicker Man has been put up for sale – sparking a potential bidding war among locals.

The Church of Scotland has put the building in Plockton on the market at offers over £90,000.

Locals fear that if it is sold to developers, the heart will be ripped from the village that became Lochdubh when BBC show Hamish Macbeth was filmed there in the 1990s.

Plockton was once home to four churches, and open-air communions have been held there frequently to mark occasions such as Easter.

Now there are fears there will be nowhere to marry or worship in the village.
