Portree, a picturesque town on the beautiful and peaceful Island of Skye, is clustered around the harbour. There is an abundance of opportunities to engage with culture; the Aros Centre's schedule of performances in music, theatre, and film makes it particularly appealing. There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts, such as sea kayaking, rock climbing, and a variety of well-marked hikes. In particular, the rock formations are breathtaking; Trotternish Ridge is 31 kilometres of uninterrupted cliffs boasting numerous beautiful rock shapes and pinnacles.

Having sheep right outside the front yard was an unexpected (and wonderful) surprise <3
Our third year running on the Isle of Skye and our first stay at Gramarye Cottage. The location is superb and the cottage is excellent, so clean and well equipped we were short of nothing. Home from home and nicely decorated and laid out. Weather was unusually good for the time of year. Spotted a Sea Otter at close quarters on the rocks at the adjacent Braes Bay and the icing on the cake was watching two pairs of White Tailed Sea Eagles performing right in front of the cottage for 20 minutes.
