Paths & Signs
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 Trust are now looking for individuals to join the Paths and Walks group, a group set up to help organise events to manage funds raised and to work with the Trust's Development Officer to deliver relevant projects. If you are interested in improving and promoting walks in the area or simply have some free time and would like to get involved with the Trust please get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org.
