Today, we toured the Isle of Skye from our base at Plockton. Despite awful weather we managed to visit the key sites including Portree and Dunvegan Castle plus witnessing a spectacular display of rainbows in the Trotternish region.

Portree is the principal town on Skye. Population about 2500 of which 38 pct. can speak Gaelic. The town is well endowed with a wide range of accommodation, from bunkhouses through to luxury hotels.Central location provides a good base for touring the island.
