Portree is the main town on Skye offering a good base to explore the largest island of the Inner Hebrides in the north-west of Scotland. Rated as one of the world’s greatest islands by National Geographic, Skye’s natural scenery is truly spectacular and rarely found anywhere else in the world.

Portree Independent Hostel is well situated in the middle of the town, only two minutes away from the main bus stop. A supermarket, various restaurants and the snug harbour front with its insider tip seafood eatery won’t leave you hungry. Charming village pubs with friendly locals and an information centre are all in walking distance.

The hostel can accommodate up to 60 travellers, mainly in 4 and 6 bedded rooms, larger groups can make use of the two 10 and 12 bedded top floor dorm rooms. There are three mixed bathrooms (shower, sink, toilet) in the house with a further two toilets on the ground floor. The small reception area includes comfy sofas where you can relax, read a book or even watch TV.

The well equipped kitchen provides plenty of space and is a good place to meet fellow international travellers. All rooms, floors and walls are painted with bright colours, creating a friendly and warm atmosphere. What stands out is the unique carpet on the ground floor with a local tartan pattern. The rooms, fitted with carpets and curtains, are cleaned daily. However, if it is fully booked (as it is most of the time), it can get a bit crowded and at peak times you may experience a short queue in front of the bathrooms.
