The harbour is small and nothing much to see. A walk round Portree definitely worth a lazy afternoon but the harbour itself is only a 10 minute visit. The gift shops in Portree are also very expensive.

Portree Harbour in the evening is something special, particularly when the sun is setting. One of my more memorable moments in Skye, lookin out over the Harbour from our restaurant. Colorful building make such a perfect impression.

I think the excursions take you to the most famous (popular) sights of Skye - like Old Man of Storr, or Fairie Glen, or Fairy Pool, or Neist Point, etc. I am not sure how accessible these will be from the ship. Most of... More
