Portree, Isle of Skye, Scotland; June 2009
After my trip to Orkney last summer, I travelled back south via the Scottish Highlands, the Isle of Skye and Glasgow. I was blessed with gorgeous weather while I was in Skye and went hiking, hill climbing, cycling and dolphin watching.
Since I was getting around on the limited public bus service, I based myself in Portree. It’s the largest town on Skye but it’s not large at all – you can walk from one side to the other in about twenty minutes. It’s a pretty, bustling community with colourful terraced buildings and a lively port filled with both pleasure and fishing boats. I caught a bagpipe band performance in the town square, quite by accident.
I loved my time in Skye and will write more about my adventures soon. For now, here are a few more pictures of Portree.
