The Royal Hotel Portree is a traditional, comfortable hotel, steeped in history, where friendly staff will make you feel at home on the Isle of Skye.

Royal Hotel Portree offers town centre convenience.

With views over the picturesque harbour and beyond, the Royal Hotel Portree is in the heart of town. The town is a lively place with shops and music at weekends and well placed for touring.   It is well worth exploring, especially the picturesque harbour area just down a short hill from the hotel.  Walks out into the countryside and the Portree forest are easily accessible from the hotel.

The centre of town is quite elevated, so the  Royal Hotel Portree offers good views over the harbour, yet still has level access to the surrounding town area.

Portree, with a population of about 2400, is the main town of the Isle of Skye and has developed in a manner sympathetic to its environment, serving both local residents’ and visitors’ requirements.  On the outskirts of the town, the award winning Aros centre provides further shopping and visitor attractions.

During a recent modernisation programme, the Royal Hotel Portree has been  stylishly equipped for the 21st century, without losing its historic charm.

On the ground floor, there is a pleasant restaurant, a bright modern cafe bar, plus two further bars.

Accommodation at the Royal Hotel Portree

Bedrooms are all en-suite, comfortably furnished and the hotel includes a spacious  ground floor room equipped  for disabled guests.


The Royal Hotel’s Tianavaig Restaurant is known for  local seafood. With the Tianavaig pinnacle in the distance you can sit and enjoy a  meal prepared using the best local produce available from the island.

The Well Plaid Restaurant has a more casual feel to it, and offers a wide range of different tastes, catering for couples, families and larger groups.

MacNab’s Inn at the Royal Hotel Portree is a relaxed and friendly lounge bar where you can try local beers, sample the range of malts or tuck into a bar meal.
