The Hebrides region
Originally named Kiltarigan, Port-righe – meaning King’s Port in Gaelic – was renamed after a visit by King George V. Situated in a natural harbour, Portree is a delightful haven for visiting yachts and cruise ships which return year after year. On a summer’s evening you can watch the local fishermen landing their catch.
Boat trips leave regularly from the bustling harbour. You can try deep sea fishing or go for a leisurely cruise around the neighboring Island of Raasay. There are many fine seafood restaurants to be found in and around Portree. After a delicious meal why not take a stroll to the village square where The Isle of Skye Pipe Band regularly play on summer evenings. Street fayres are held in the summer months providing fun and games for all the family.
The island’s swimming pool offers regular fun days which the children will love. Local cycle hire is also available. There is a superb children’s playground at the Aros Experience – visitors will also enjoy the exhibition telling the full story of Bonnie Prince Charlie’s famed visit to Skye.
The less energetic can while away the hours watching the local shinty team entertaining the crowd at their home park – Parc na Loch.
For many people Portnalong/ Carbost this is the most inspirational area of the island. The awe inspiring scenery provided by the magnificent Cuillins has attracted countless visitors for over a century. Climbers, walkers, artists and photographers are drawn by the wonderful panoramic views and the challenge to either capture images or conquer the mighty peaks and ridges. You can watch the local fishermen landing their catches at nearby Carbost and Portnalong. This area enjoys a good selection of pubs and restaurants and children are well catered for. The renowned Talisker Distillery offers guided tours for visitors and there are regular events held throughout the summer months which all the family can enjoy.
