The Isle of Skye is the largest of the Inner Hebrides, with some of Britain's most dramatic scenery. Portree is the main town on Skye. Its name comes from the Gaelic Port-an-Righ, which translates as "King's Port" and dates to a visit by King James V.
The centre of life in Portree has to be its harbour. This is in a superb natural setting, being surrounded by high ground and cliffs. Built around the harbour at harbourside level are a range of buildings which have featured in more than one calendar photograph down the years. The run of brightly painted buildings down the south-west side is especially striking. The main town of Portree lies above and behind the harbour. The main focus is Somerled Square, home to the war memorial, some car parking, and most of the bus stops in the town. Much of the shopping is to be found in the roads leading from Somerled Square towards the harbour: and Wentworth Street offers a range of those "interesting but not essential" shops that make any visit worthwhile. In recent years Portree has spread out from its traditional centre, with newer buildings including housing, supermarkets and the island's main secondary school. Also on the southern outskirts of Portree is the Skye Heritage Centre and the associated Aros Experience, designed to bring to life the history and experience of Skye.
