The Highland Council are currently preparing to submit a £50 million bid to the UK's Levelling Up Fund to secure transformational investment in Portree Harbour. The deadline for submission of the bid is fast approaching on the 1st of July 2022 and a further opportunity to comment on plans will be provided by Portree and Braes Community Trust on Friday the 17th of June.
