Portree and Skye History on the Web

Inevitably, there is a huge range of references to the Portree area on the Internet - some better than others, some commercial, some research-based.

This list, which will grow with this site, represents some of those we have found.
We leave it up to our readers to judge the relative value of each, and cannot be held responsible for their content,
but think you may find them worthwhile and interesting.
