General Information


Portsoy HarbourThe small town of Portsoy looks out across the North Sea from its 17th Century Harbour.  The port was developed, principally for the exporting of Portsoy marble and a healthy trade was done with France (Louis XIV used Portsoy marble in the construction of two of the chimney pieces for the Palace of Versailles). 

Portsoy really comes alive for two days in early July, when it hosts a traditional and lively Scottish Traditional Boat Festival, a showcase of historic wooden fishing and sailing boats. The festival also includes food fayre, traditional music and a half marathon. Portsoy is situated on the National Cycle Route, with excellent rides to the east and west of the village. There are fine coastal walks to be enjoyed, including to the tiny fishing village of Sandend, a few miles along to the West, with some fine sandy beaches along the way.

There are excellent golf courses at Banff and Macduff and no less than 18 castles, from ruins to stately homes, within an hour's drive of the village!
