As Portree emerges from the lockdown during the Coronavirus pandemic of 2020, the West Highland Bar of the Portree Hotel has erected a row of small greenhouses shaded by sapling trees along the eastern side of Somerled Square so that guests can be served in a socially-distanced manner while being protected from rain, wind and midges.

The taxi drivers who previously used this side of the square as a rank to uplift shoppers and passengers alighting from the bus stances have not been happy at this act of reclamation or encroachment, depending on your point of view.
