Discover the cliff-fringed harbor of Portree, Scotland

With a harbor fringed by cliffs, Portree is the largest town on Scotland’s most famous of islands, the Isle of Skye. Built around its harbor, Portree is a bustling port town, thriving cultural center and popular destination for travelers.

Portree boasts excellent leisure facilities, including the award-winning Aros Centre, which runs regular theatre, concerts and film screenings, pony-trekking and boat cruises plus plenty of shopping opportunities. 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: this is wild country dominated by weird and wonderful rock formations such as the Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock and the truly extraordinary pinnacles of the Quiraing.

Imagine sitting on one of the loveliest terraces in Portree overlooking one of the most historical and scenic harbors on Scotland’s enchanting Isle of Skye. Discover the idyllic beauty of Portree on your next tour of Scotland with Celtic Tours. Portree is a featured stop on our new Highland’s Explorer vacation to Scotland.
