Bars, shops and some of the best restaurants on the island are within a short walk of this stunning 2 bed flat. New to the holiday rental market (June 2019) - comfortable, modern and tastefully decorated throughout - we hope we've provided everything needed for a great stay!

The flat has a comfortable lounge overlooking the main square - the perfect place to watch the hustle and bustle of the town, a fully equipped spacious kitchen/dining area, 2 double bedrooms and stylish shower room/toilet. Free wifi provided.
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.
