Modern open plan kitchen, dining and living area made cosy with underfloor heating and a multi fuel stove. The bedroom and shower room are both spacious and comfortable.
房源空間 The original building dates back to the 1850's but The Top Flat was extensively refurbished in 2009. Retaining the original stone fireplace wall but otherwise fully modernised and finished to a high standard. Comfortable king size bed, free wifi, smart tv in lounge, cosy underfloor heating and a multi fuel stove to provide comfort all year round. Entry to the flat involves climbing two floors - one of which is a fairly steep concrete set at the rear of the building so may not be suitable for less mobile guests or small children.
There is a pay and display car park in the town square and ample free parking just a few minutes walk from the property.
The village of Portree, situated on the east side of Skye overlooking a sheltered bay, is the capital of the island.
It has everything a visitor could wish for – banks, churches, cafes and restaurants, a cinema at the Aros Centre, a swimming pool and library at the school, gift and book shops, a tourist information centre, petrol filling stations and supermarkets, one in the village and a larger one out on the Dunvegan Road.
There is a regular daily bus service from Portree’s Somerled Square (outide the apartment) to Inverness and Glasgow and a local service round Skye. There are also sight-seeing trips round the island by bus or car and boat trips from the pier.
The village hosts numerous annual events, such as the Portree Show, the Isle of Skye half marathon and the Islands largest event the Skye Highland Games drawing visitors and locals alike.
A visit to the tourist office before leaving Portree is advisable. It is well sign posted and staffed by helpfully well informed locals. They equip visitors with maps and printable directions to attractions throughout the island. They can even point out where to buy suitable wet weather gear should it become necessary.
