The Isle of Skye, or in Scots Gaelic 'Eilean A Cheo' meaning Misty Isle, is located on the north western coast of Scotland and is a world-renowned holiday destination for a great number of reasons, appealing to a wide range of visitors. Portree is the cultural hub for Skye, and the largest settlement with a population of about 2500. Its name comes from the Gaelic Port-an-Righ, which translates as "King's Port" and dates to a visit by King James V, plus a fleet of warships, in 1540, to persuade the island clans to support him. Portree is a bustling port and a thriving cultural centre, and was also the place where Bonnie Prince Charlie spent his last days in Scotland. Among the attractions of Portree is the award winning Aros Centre which incorporates an exhibition capturing the drama of Skye's history. The centre is also the access point for walks in Portree Forest. Portree has an abundance of interesting shops and is a must-visit location for those travelling to the Isle of Skye.
Skye’s rugged Cuillin Mountains are known to walkers and climbers the world over and visitors are drawn to the spectacular Trotternish Ridge to the north as this wild area is dominated by astonishing rock formations such as the Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock and the truly extraordinary pinnacles of the Quaraing. Fishing, water sports and genealogy are constant attractions along with breath-taking scenery, castles, distilleries and a Highland welcome.
The influence of the sea is also never far away (you are never more than 11 miles from sea) with sea fishing and a wide range of other water sports available on Skye, (including diving and kayaking) Wildlife cruises sail from various locations from which you might be able to spot seals, lovable otters, great golden eagles or even rare and mighty sea eagle.
Portree’s active port is set around a natural harbour framed by high cliffs, is a centre of activity used by fishing boats and cruise ships as well as pleasure craft. Portree benefits from excellent leisure facilities including a swimming pool, pony-trekking and boat cruises plus plenty of shopping opportunities in addition to the great variety of cafes and restaurants, all of which are in easy walking distance. There is primary and secondary schooling within the town.

The property has steep rising ground to the rear which has limited amenity value. To the side of the property is an area of flat ground where there is a shack and bench seating which was highly popular for alfresco dining, selling ice-creams etc. The shack was designed to provide a refreshment stand. Most diners are accommodated within the town centre and therefore parking is not an issue. For those travelling further afield there are numerous public parking areas within the town centre.
The business benefits from mains electricity, water and drainage. Heating throughout is electric, there is no mains gas to the property. LPG gas is used for cooking. The property is fully double glazed and is fire safety compliant.
The current vendors have owned the business since 2006, having fully redeveloped the property making it the delightful venue it represents today. It is now their desire to focus on other properties and businesses within their portfolio, hence their decision to sell this potentially profitable and highly attractive leasehold opportunity.
