Portree is Skye’s main town and central hub, making it a fantastic base to explore the island. The charming town centre is where you’ll find a selection of shops, eateries and amenities and a stroll down to the pretty harbour reveals colourful facades, bobbing moored boats and green-fringed hills in the background.
Take a short and easy walk along a series of walkways to admire one of Skye’s many waterfalls, as it cascades through gorge and out to sea, past the ruins of an old dynamite factory.
A location made famous by social media, these waterfalls and teal coloured pools sit against a backdrop of gnarly, black Cuillin mountains. We recommend visiting early in the morning or late in the day to avoid the crowds.Discover more
