Portree is the capital of Skye lies on a sheltered loch on the centre of the east coast of the island.

It has a harbour and a pier offering some tourist boats connecting Skye with its smaller sister island of Raasay.

There are hotels, guest houses, bed and breakfast as well as self catering accommodation available on the island.

The name derives from Gaelic meaning "Kings Haven" and recalls to the visit made to the island by James V when he was sailing through the Hebrides in an attempt to control these outlying islands of his dominions .

Portree is excellently placed tours in all directions over Skye.

It is in its own rights a pleasing town with many white washed character houses.
