Join us for a delightful walking tour through the historic Scottish fishing town of Portree.
Portree, or Port an Righ in Gaelic, meaning King's Harbor, was named after King James V's visit with his fleet in 1540. Today, Portree is a bustling fishing town, with pretty painted buildings huddled around a charming harbor.
Depart the pier for a guided walking tour of this historic little town. Your knowledgeable local guide will explain some of the history behind the buildings and street names of Portree, and entertain you with local tales as you stroll its charming streets. You'll learn about its founder, Sir James MacDonald, who built the town with a vision of education for all, and a thriving trade and society. The most impressive buildings are mainly found in Portree's central square, with impressive facades and histories to match.
After your tour, you'll have plenty of time to explore some of the lovely little shops selling Scottish goods, crafts and tartans before returning to the ship at your leisure.
Please note: This tour involves approximately 1-hour of moderate walking that includes some pauses along the way. Portions of the walk are over uneven surfaces and there is a short, but steep path up from the harbor. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and may not be suitable for those with mobility concerns. Weather appropriate clothing, umbrellas and flat comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
