About the location

PORTSOY

Cullen 6 miles; Banff 7 miles; Portknochie 8 miles.

Portsoy is an historic port situated mid-way between the towns of Cullen and Banff on the pretty Moray Firth coast and is one of the many atmospheric fishing ports scattered along this impressive stretch of the north east coastline of Scotland. Boasting two harbours, one old and one new and with excellent local facilities including hotels, pubs and shops, Portsoy is a wonderful holiday destination as well as being near to the famous Malt Whisky Trail. The area is awash with quality golf courses with fabulous coastal views and the coastal path is perfect for walkers who want to enjoy the unspoilt beauty of the area and roam freely on its lovely beaches. A visit to the Salmon Bothy is a must to get a real feel of the interesting history of Portsoy and hear the story of the area as a trading, fishing and smuggling port.
