Portree is Skye’s main town with all the amenities that a visitor would wish for as well as a lovely setting. It’s set around its harbour with fishing boats, pleasure craft and prettily painted houses.
The backdrop is of hills with Ben Tianavaig, Suidh Fhinn and Ben Chrachaig visible from the town and looking across to the Island of Raasay you can see Dun Caan. The town provides the visitor with petrol stations, banks, cafes, restaurants, churches, a swimming pool, library, book shops, gift shops, cinema, theatre, concerts, tourist information centre and supermarkets.
As well as all these amenities there are lots of types of accommodation to suit all budgets and boat trips and bus tours for the tourist. If using public transport, the buses from Glasgow and Inverness stop here and you can get a bus from here to other parts of the island. All and all an ideal base for holidaymakers.
