A Day in Portree

Portree is located on the Isle of Skye in Scotland, and recently, some part of Made of Honour were shot here.

Getting around the isle is quite difficult without a car. There is so much to see and the landscape is so varied, that being in just one spot does not do justice to this great place. Regardless, I jumped on a bus to Broadford, a village about 30 minutes south of Portree, and wandered through the village and along the harbour for awhile. There was great scenery on the bus ride south:

I jumped off the bus at Broadford, and wandered through the tiny village and in and out the little shops. After that, I walked along the harbour, out on the pier and through the other side of the village. I grabbed some meat, fruit and cheese at the local Co-op, sat down on a bench in the harbour and ate lunch.

It began to rain while I was waiting for the bus back – perfect time to be heading back to Portree.
I when I returned, I will still up for some walking and the weather was beautiful again, so I went on the recommended Scorrybreac circuit. It starts in the town harbour, but you walk up and around the mountains and get some great views.

A quick trip back to the harbour for a few great shots:

After a full day, I headed back to the hostel, made dinner and shared wine with some folks there. A nice quiet way to end the day.
