Scottish Citylink runs regular coach services between Skye and Glasgow (including Glasgow Airport) and between Skye and Inverness. Citylink coaches are also the way to travel within Skye along the main A87 road, from Kyleakin, through Broadford, Sligachan and Portree, to Uig.
The local bus and coach services here are operated by Stagecoach. You can download a timetable for their Skye services from here. Enter "Portree" into the box marked "Download bus timetable PDF". Clicking on any of the routes that come up will get you all the Skye bus times.
I'd give you a link direct to the bit you need, if only the good folk at Stagecoach would stop changing the URL every single time they issue a new timetable!
There are direct flights to Inverness Airport from Amsterdam and Dublin, and from a number of UK cities, including London, Manchester, Belfast, Birmingham and Bristol. Details do vary frequently, so it's best to check the latest information here.
A croft is not a building. A croft is a unit of land subject to the Crofting Acts. It may or may not have a house on it.There are around 2,000 crofts on Skye.
