The most prominent town on the Isle of Skye, Portree cradles much of the island’s history and culture, as well as its busy port and natural harbour. Surrounded by towering cliffs and fishing boats bobbing offshore, Portree fosters a nautical ambience that lends itself to boating, angling and sunset cruises.
Visit Aros Centre, where you’ll find exhibitions on the town’s history, natural landscapes and recordings of sea eagles in motion. In the evening, you can attend theatre productions, musical performances and film screenings.
Stroll down Wentworth Street for shopping and antique hunting. It’s also lined with small cafes, espresso shops and elegant restaurants. In the village square, you’ll often find live performances by the Skye Pipe Band, particularly in the warmer months.
Down at the harbour, you can book a boat excursion to spot sea eagles, dolphins, seals and whales. Other boating trips include sunset cruises or sightseeing voyages to see the 13th-century Eilean Donan Castle. You can also join a fishing charter or rent some gear for salmon and trout fishing along the island rivers.
Take a nature walk through forests, salt marshes and bird-watching trails on Portree. Venture further into the island to explore its fascinating rock formations, such as Old Man of Storr and Kilt Rock, then hike to the summit of Quiraing for panoramic Isle of Skye views.
Buses and taxis offer transportation around town and to other parts of the island, while bike hire companies offer mountain bikes, cruisers, e-bikes and tandems. You can rent a car in Portree or at Benbecula Airport, about 100 kilometres away.
