Portree Harbour

Though not pictured with a sunny sky and throngs of cheering sunworshippers dotting white sandy beaches, Portree, particularly the harbour, is beautiful any time of year. Portree comes from the Gaelic Port-an-Righ which means Port of the Kings.  This is presumably due to King James V paying the Isle a visit in the 1500’s (along with a substantial military fleet) as he tried to drum up support from the area clans. The main town on the Isle of Skye, Portree has some decent shopping, plenty of places to stay and eat, and lovely views as well!
