Get in

By Bus

Several coaches a day run to Fort William, Inverness and Glasgow. Frequent local buses serve all the other towns on Skye. Principal destinations include: Broadford, Kyleakin, Kyle of Lochalsh (actually just over the bridge on the mainland) and Uig. It is easier to reach Armadale by changing buses in Broadford.

By Car

The main road runs from the Skye Bridge at Kyleakin through Broadford to Portree.

Get around

Portree is a small town - almost everything is only 5 minutes walk away. You may want to take a bus to the Co-op supremarket on the edge of town.


  • The Harbour - the pretty harbour and shingle beach are worth a visit, with attractive hills sheltering the bay from the sea.



  • For food for self-catering or Youth Hostellign, there is a small Tesco in the town centre and Co-op on the edge of town.
  • There are several interesting craft shops




Get out

  • Visit the nearby Old Man of Storr or Trotternish Peninsula.
