 about 4 miles
 From the car park in Plockton turn left and head back up the road out of the village passing on your left Plockton Primary School (Esme's school)and further up the hill on the right Plockton secondary school which appears in various guises in the series.
 From Plockton take the road to Durinish which featured in the opening scenes of "A perfectly simple explanation" (series two). Turn right and go through Durinish avoiding the highland cows which DO wander freely around the village.
 Follow this road for a mile or so until you reach Drumbuie. The location used is just past the village on a twisty section of the road going up a small hill. There is space to park at the side of the road.
