Bank Street, Portree, Isle of Skye

Taken in the 1970s, this photograph shows shops in Bank Street, Portree including Lipton's and the Highland Home Industries outlet on the right and Stewart's Ironmongers on the left. The Royal Hotel is located further down the street on the right with painters busy repainting the white facade.

The bank, currently (2011) the Royal Bank of Scotland, from which Bank Street takes its name, faces up towards Bosville Terrace. In the early part of the 20th century, the building housed the National Bank and the manager's home, which is described in some detail in Isobel Macdonald's book "A Family in Skye 1908-1916". Her father, Ronald Macdonald, was the Bank Manager and his family lived in the house attached to the bank.
