This brilliant event takes place every year in the lovely town of Portsoy, a short amble from both the Old Police Station and Driftwood Cottage,  just down the road from our Sandend holiday cottage, and an easy drive from 6 Seatown.

This year, the Scottish Traditional Boat Festival celebrates it’s 30th anniversary.

Organisers have pulled out all the stops and will be making waves with an action-packed weekend of festival fun, celebrating seafaring heritage, food and drink, music and dance, crafts and much more.

Be sure to set sail for Portsoy’s boat festival to be part of the magical mix!

Due to covid, 2021 was a digital festival so you can still get a taster of the highlights! In the superb natural setting of Portsoy’s harbour, as featured in Whisky Galore and Peaky Blinders, there’s no better place to celebrate.
