Throughout Portree and Braes you will find a wide variety of paths and walks with spectacular views, abundant wildlife and natural flora.
Along with other groups and agencies Portree & Braes Community Trust aim to improve, protect, preserve and increase the pathways around our community. To date, the Trust has been involved with repairing and restoring footpaths, replacing woodland steps and clearing waste from community paths and nature walks. The Trust are always looking for local volunteers to provide help keep the local path networks and green spaces clean and tidy and run a monthly Clean Up Club. If you are interested please get in touch or see the events page for more information.
The trust also undertake fundraising locally to promote and improve path networks across Portree and Braes.
In October 2019 15 local people took part in a sponsored walk from the Old Man of Storr to Sligachan Hotel, approx 25 miles over challenging mixed terrain. The walk highlighted the boundary of the Portree and Braes area, raised over £1000 for the Light Up Portree Christmas fund and provided an opportunity for those taking part to explore remote parts of the island.
We need you!
The Clean Up Club were recently awarded almost £10,000 from the Corra Foundation to work with the local Alzheimer Scotland team and revamp the garden at the Tigh Na Drochaid Resource centre in Portree. The aim is to make the garden more accessible and enjoyable for service users at the centre, their families and the wider community. The trust are now looking for volunteers to help with this project between March and May 2021 and beyond. Please click here for more information about the jobs we would like some help with. Thank you!
