TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

Portree, or Port Righ (Gaelic-Kings Port) is a vibrant, bustling fishing port on the Isle of Skye. Full of history, culture and fantastic scenery and famous for its brightly colored houses, Gaelic culture and beautiful setting. Come and see the sights on a unique sight running tour. Starting in historic and picturesque Somerled Square we run past historic buildings before heading out along the beautiful coastal path of Scorrybreac - home of the Clan Nicolson with amazing views of Portree harbor and the Cuillin Mountains.

The Clan Nicolson is one of Skye’s oldest Clans and have their ancestral home in Portree. The ruins of their castle can be seen near to the route. The current Clan Chief, John MacNicol ,actually lives in Australia now! After three kilometers of undulating trails we run through the scenic crofting township of Torvaig, with its highland cattle and views of the Old Man of Storr, before descending back into Portree via the beautiful Lisgarry river and Am Meall, site of the Skye Highland games. The tour finishes at bustling Portree Harbour outside its famous seafood restaurants.

  • DO YOU CANCEL IF IT RAINS?
    No-Skye isn’t famous for its climate so I will run in all weathers, although if the weather is too bad I may suggest an alternative route.

    WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
    Be prepared for all weather even in summer. The climate is generally mild but we do get some warm days with temperatures in the 20’s.
    If the weather is poor I recommend that you take a waterproof jacket along, it is often windy and the weather can change quickly.
    My runs are on a combination of roads and trails-some of which are quite rough. Make sure you are wearing good shoes - trail shoes are preferable.

    IS THERE WATER ON THE TOUR?
    No. Please bring your own water with you.

    HOW FAST DO YOU RUN ON THE TOURS, DO I HAVE TO BE AN ELITE RUNNER TO PARTICIPATE?
    No, I’ll run at your pace or you’ll run at mine if you’re quicker than me .It’s a tour, not a race.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO STORE BAGS AND CLOTHES AT THE PLACE WE START?
    Unfortunately, there is no storage for bags. Please travel light.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO TAKE PICTURES ALONG THE WAY?
    Yes, you can bring your camera and snap away. If there is a certain place you would like to take a picture, then simply ask your guide.

    DO YOU HAVE A HOTEL PICK-UP SERVICE?
    We offer our private tours an optional hotel pick-up service. The hotel or apartment building should be on or close to the tour route.

tip  BOOKING TIP:
BOOK EARLY - GIVE US SOME TIME
We recommend to book your running tour minimum 2-3 days before your preferred tour date. Especially during the different high seasons, when many guests like to join our runs.
That will give the guide/city manager enough time to arrange together with you the last tour details like the meeting point, start time and to organize a personal tour guide for your unique and fun running experience.
