  • Very quaint once you find a parking space. House in the harbour are sweet. Loads of coffee shops in town which was nice.
  • Portree Harbour has masses of potential - the view from a distance is persuasive, but unfortunately it does not stand up to an actual visit. Everywhere you look, from the first approach and all along, there are bins, bins, and more bins. Obviously they are necessary, but they are everywhere, with no attempt at concealment. I have visited Tobermory, with its famous, colourful harbour frontage, and I see no reason why Portree's harbour shouldn't be at least as attractive, but I'm afraid at the moment it looks unkempt and as if the local council don't care.
