Find cottages in PortreeVisit Portree

Portree is the largest town on Isle of Skye and provides the perfect base, either in the town itself or in the surrounding area, for your cottage holiday on the Isle of Skye. This wonderful island has a rich Gaelic heritage and great natural beauty, which has attracted holidaymakers for decades.

This charming town is surrounded by lush green hills and fringed by cliffs, the brightly painted houses that line Portree harbour are a sight to behold. This harbour is a hive of activity where fishing boats and pleasure cruises bob side by side in a tranquil setting.

A walk through the town will take visitors past Portree's most prominent landmark, the Mercat Cross and war memorial on Somerled Square. Another popular landmark in the town is the Royal Hotel, an important piece of history not only for its architecture, but also because it was once the site of MacNabs Inn, where in 1746, Bonnie Prince Charlie last met Flora MacDonald.

For those interested in the history and heritage of Portree and the Isle of Skye, the award winning Aros Centre is the cultural hub of the town. Interactive exhibits, theatre performances, concerts and films all combine to form an incredible exhibition dedicated to the area's culture.

Portree is extremely picturesque and those who enjoy outdoor activities can indulge in their favourite pursuits. Sailing and fishing are both popular pastimes here; boat rental is available and pleasure cruises depart from the harbour. For those who enjoy walking or cycling, there is an abundance of trails around the town and pony treks are also offered.

Book one of the many cottages in Portree and enjoy a holiday in a Scottish town unspoilt by time.

Weaver’s Cottage Ref: 28511


This traditional cottage, which was once the home of the last weaver to work in this part of Skye, faces the Trotternish hills and from the grounds there are glorious views to the Outer Hebrides. Inside, the cottage has a cosy and homely character. There is a large kitchen with a dining table to swap holiday stories around and the sitting room has an open fire. Attached to the owners’ croft house but remaining private, it makes a comfortable base from which to explore this remote part of the Misty Isle. Walks are possible straight from the front door, go through the nearest gate and head for the hills. Visitors have spotted whales, seals, otters, basking sharks, dolphins and eagles, all within a few miles of the cottage and in the winter months a few lucky guests may be treated to a spectacular display of the Northern Lights. Weaver’s Cottage is just north of Uig which has a shop, a petrol station and a couple of good pubs and restaurants. It is the ferry port to the Outer Hebrides and you can arrange a day trip to these remote islands. Close by is the Museum of Island life, an educational visit with traditional stone and thatch cottages filled with pictures and artefacts. There are two castles nearby. One at Duntulm is three miles north of the cottage. It’s next to the Duntulm pub, so it is best to combine a trip here with a lunchtime meal. The castle consists of a small ruin, which is not very impressive, but it’s free, and the views are lovely! At Waternish there is Dunvegan Castle. This is a real castle, still lived in, and the seat of the Macleod clan. It has Claymores, oil paintings, four poster beds, and the famous Fairy Flag. Portree is about half an hour away. This is where you can shop for your food supplies or local crafts and don’t forget to try the fish and chips down by the harbour. This breathtaking area is ideal for walking, wildlife spotting or just watching the sun go down. Every lay-by to and from this part of the world offers a postcard view to take your breath away. If you can tear yourself away from the island, The Isle of Skye bridge opens up the whole of the mainland to explore or you can still travel by ferry to Glenelg where the well preserved Brochs, iron age dwellings, can be found. The Capital of the Highlands, Inverness, is an easy day trip away. Shop, pub and restaurant 5 miles.

The Stables Ref: W40687

Historical base


Monkstadt has played a romantic role in Highland history. Originally the seat of Clan Macdonald in 1730 when they abandoned Duntulm Castle, it is reputed to have been the first slated house on Skye, and was described by James Boswell in 1773 as a ‘considerable building’. This single storey barn conversion, accessed via a 1 mile track, is situated in the original steading, which includes a granary, stable, cartshed and mill – all of which have been sympathetically converted into holiday accommodation. This makes an ideal base for exploring the Isle of Skye, with Flora Macdonalds monument and ruined Duntulm Castle both nearby. The Quirang and Old Man of Storr offer unrivalled walking and climbing whilst the beauty, wildlife and numerous outdoor pursuits appeal to all ages. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

All on ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen. 1 double bedroom. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet.

Electric central heating and electricity included (by meter reading October-April). Bed linen and towels included. DVD. Washing machine. Shared lawned garden and furniture. Parking (1 car).
