Portree is the main town on the Isle of Skye. It is a bustling port, used by both fishing boats and pleasure boats, set round its natural harbour and fringed by high ground and cliffs. It is also a thriving cultural centre and a popular tourist destination.

 

The town is a popular base for exploring the rest of the island. Many visitors are drawn to the spectacular scenery of the Trotternish Ridge to the north as this wild area is dominated by weird and wonderful at the same time rock formations such as the Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock and the truly extraordinary pinnacles of the Quaraing. To the south there is the spectacular Cuillin ridge, and a variety of different scenery heading down towards the Sleat perninsula.
