More about Royal Hotel

Isle of Skye -- Portree

by Ben-UK

Portree is the main town on the Isle of Skye -- its name comes from the Gaelic 'Port-an-Righ' which means King's Port -- this goes back to a visit by King George V in 1540 who wanted the island clans to support him.

Of course it was to Skye that Bonnie Prince Charlie fled after defeat at Culloden in 1746 -- he was aided by Flora MacDonald in his flight to France and he said farewell to her in what wasMacNab's Inn on Bank Street -- this is now the Royal Hotel.

Portree is a busy town with lots of shops and of course a busy harbour -- if you go to Skye you'll surely go to Portree.

Travel Tips for Portree

The Isle of Skye

by Morepork

"The Land of my Ancestors"

Bonny Prince Charlie hid in a cave just north of Portree.
Flora McDonald rowed him in a boat across from the Mainland to flee from the Jacobites.
I think that's the way it goes.
We crossed by way of ferry but now there is a bridge across. That has taken away all the the romance of bygone days.!
