Portree Walking Tours are about sharing experiences, trying new things, building friendships and feeling like a local. On our 2 to 3 hour small group walks, the aim is to make you feel right at home on the Isle of Skye. We'll take you to our most spectacular views only a short walk from Portree and give you a taste for life on the Island! You'll discover the dramatic history of Skye from a local perspective, and get the chance to try some famous local snacks. Meet new people, both local and further afield and share a dram in one of the most beautiful places on earth! Most of all we want to help you build a lasting connection to The Isle of Skye, its culture and people. It seems to be working, we had some great reviews in 2018!
We offer small group walks (max 8) in the morning and in the evening. On our mid-morning walk, you'll see some of the best views around Portree that only the locals know. We'll be away from the crowds as we walk the hidden coastal paths that meander out from the town. The landscapes you'll see are incredible, but the dramatic true stories that unfolded here will really bring your imagination to life. You'll be guided through our history, from the creation of our billion-year-old geology to the rise of our most famous clans & kings! You'll also discover the lasting global impact our history has had on places like America, Australia, and Canada. There'll also be some famous local treats to taste along the way!
Our evening was is little muddy, with a few more ups and downs, this is a walk for those feeling slightly more adventurous! We'll set off a little while before sunset (time given at booking), heading up the hill to some of 'best-kept secret' views of Skye! In the evening you'll see Skye at its dramatic best. We'll be walking through ancient clan territory, that still has cultural significance today. You'll hear about Skye's dark past, from brutal clan warfare to the alliances that helped Robert The Bruce reclaim Scotland. We'll spend that extra bit of time so you can feel totally immersed in our island story.
We'll arrive back to a traditional Scottish pub, pairing some chocolate, with our famous local whisky. Trust me - Chocolate and whisky is the only way to end an adventure - with friends - on Skye!
