Portree Local History Society's
major contribution
to the Village.

Copies of this leaflet are available
from many places around the village,
including the Tourist Information Office.

We are grateful for the help
both financial and practical,
we have been given by Highland Council,
building owners and others
and, in particular, Ian Burn for his
work in putting the leaflet together.

There are commemorative plaques
attached to buildings around the village
to complement the contents of this leaflet.
