Portree

Portree is the largest town on Isle of Skye and provides the perfect base, either in the town itself or in the surrounding area, for your cottage holiday on the Isle of Skye. This wonderful island has a rich Gaelic heritage and great natural beauty, which has attracted holidaymakers for decades.

This charming town is surrounded by lush green hills and fringed by cliffs, the brightly painted houses that line Portree harbour are a sight to behold. This harbour is a hive of activity where fishing boats and pleasure cruises bob side by side in a tranquil setting.

A walk through the town will take visitors past Portree’s most prominent landmark, the Mercat Cross and war memorial on Somerled Square. Another popular landmark in the town is the Royal Hotel, an important piece of history not only for its architecture, but also because it was once the site of MacNabs Inn, where in 1746, Bonnie Prince Charlie last met Flora MacDonald.

For those interested in the history and heritage of Portree and the Isle of Skye, the award winning Aros Centre is the cultural hub of the town. Interactive exhibits, theatre performances, concerts and films all combine to form an incredible exhibition dedicated to the area’s culture.

Portree is extremely picturesque and those who enjoy outdoor activities can indulge in their favourite pursuits. Sailing and fishing are both popular pastimes here; boat rental is available and pleasure cruises depart from the harbour. For those who enjoy walking or cycling, there is an abundance of trails around the town and pony treks are also offered.

    This three-storey, stone Georgian house is in a magnificent seafront location with a garden to the beach, and enjoys wonderful panoramic views over Portree Bay to the Isle of Raasay, the Cuillins and the surrounding hills. It has been decorated, furnished and equipped to a very high standard with period furniture and original works of art. Great attention has been paid to ensure guests can enjoy their holiday to the maximum in a comfortable home from home. All rooms enjoy stunning views over the sea; from your bed, watch the yachts and fishing boats sailing in and out of the bay. It is not unusual to see dolphins and seals and a great variety of birdlife. Children can comb the beach for treasures and crabs! The bay and the local pub were one of the film sets for the popular film ‘Made of Honour’. Dine al fresco in the seafront garden or just relax watching the constantly changing views, or set off on one of several walks around the coastline. Set in a peaceful yet central location, Gleniffer House is just a few minutes’ walk from the charming, quiet town centre with a large selection of shops, many with handcrafted products, pubs and a variety of excellent restaurants serving local produce and seafood. Sea trips - whether it is to see the wide variety of wildlife including the sea eagles, or to fish, - are available on the doorstep. Mountain biking, climbing, horse riding, golf and kayaking are also available. The swimming pool and leisure centre/gym are within walking distance. Skye is the walkers’ and climbers’ paradise, from the Cuillin Mountains to coastal walks. Portree is ideally placed to visit all parts of the Isle – Dunvegan Castle and the coral beach, Waternish Peninsula, Armadale ‘The garden of Skye’, the majestic scenery of the Trotternish Peninsula, Talisker Distillery, or take a boat ride through the Cuillins. From Uig, visit the Outer Isles of Harris, Lewis and Uist, whilst magnificent scenery, unspoilt beaches, castles and ancient brochs are just a taste of the wide diversity of things to see and do on Skye.
