The Portee skiff Tommy’ in Portree Harbour – Murdo MacGilliivray

Join the new team of rowers in the Portree community-built boat on Saturday, April 20th, 2024, at 4:00 PM.

  • Rowing: Whether you’re a seasoned rower or a novice, if you’re interested in giving it a try and accessing the boat to row this summer come along.

  • We’ll plan together how we want to form as a rowing community, how we want to arrange rowing sessions, access the boat in the years to come.

  • We’ll have a Fire pit, food & refreshments, bring along something to share if you would like!


  • The shore is uneven and can be slippery. If the weather is bad we will reschedule on another date – please keep an eye on our website and social media for any updates.

  • This boat belongs to you and we want to make it possible for as many folk to get out on the water and give it a go as wish to. Rowing experience is not necessary. All ages are welcome.

  • Life jackets are provided and first aid and water is on the beach. Getting in and out of the boats requires folk to hop on from an uneven shore. You must be ok with getting a wee bit wet. Try to avoid wellies and other heavy boots. Have fun and see you on the water!

  • The nearest toilets and amenities are in the village, more information on this can be found here.

  • Please note there is no public parking in the area. Nearest public parking is in town (10min walk) or at the start of the Scorrybreac walk (4min)


Scorrybreac Road, first right and straight toward the shore.

The boat will be visible with the trailer here.
