Portree High School and Hostel

This photograph shows the Victorian school building on the left, construction of which began in the 1870s. The original building was added to in 1913 and 1923 as the school roll increased. The present school building (2003) was constructed during the late 1960s and the old school demolished shortly after. Plans are underway for yet another school on the same site. The Elgin Hostel for boys, seen here as the white building in the centre, was opened by the then Duchess of York, later the Queen Mother, in 1933
