The quaint village of Portree sits on a sheltered bar on the Isle of Skye. Though Portree is the island's capital, it's a peaceful and charming place to enjoy a getaway. Originally a fishing village, it's now a lovely port with plenty of tourist amenities, including a museum, a cinema, and a swimming pool. Outside the village, you'll find great walking and cycling trails along Quiraige and Lealt Falls, or you can try your hand at sailing and rowing on the beautiful blue seas.
