The end of the line, Mallaig was founded during the 1840s as a fishing village. From here take the Ferry to Armadale and continue to Portree, the capital of the Isle of Skye. Portree is only about 200 years old and was created as a fishing village at the beginning of the 19th century by the then Lord MacDonald. The name Portree or Port Righ, King’s Port in Gaelic, (as on the road signs) is popularly thought to derive from a visit by King James V (of Scotland) in 1540 but the area around the harbour was called Portree or Portray long before the arrival of the king. Its name really comes from the Gaelic for Port on the Slope.  Dinner tonight at your hotel.

The Old Man Of Storr is a 55 meter high pinnacle of basalt rock which is all that remains of a 2,800 million year old volcanic plug.
