Of all the appealing places that exist in and around Portree, one of the most fascinating, attractive and accessible must be Meall na h-Acairseid; translated literally this means the hill (or lump) of the anchorage (or harbour). The site consists of a sloping promontory which rises above the old quay and juts into Loch Portree, giving spectacular vistas on either side.

The promontory itself is known as Sron a’Mill - literally, nose or headland of the lump. While the area is often referred to as the Meall, it seems an unfortunate linguistic fate to be referred to in English by so pedestrian a name as “The Lump”.

The Skye Games Field The Meall Portree

The Lump is very close to the centre of Portree and will be well signposted on the day of the Games. To reach Portree simply follow the A87 across the Skye Bridge, or if arriving via the Mallaig-Armadale or Glenelg-Kylerhea ferries, follow the road north from the ferry terminals until you reach the A87 and then continue to Portree.

Portree is served by Citylink buses from Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness and Fort William with connections to all parts of Scotland.
