Festival time in Portsoy

The Scottish Traditional Boat Festival will take place on July 4th and 5th this year, and we are delighted to have had confirmation of further financial support from Aberdeen Asset Management. Each year the festival delivers a wonderful and eclectic range of maritime linked events, crafts and an extensive music programme. This year is shaping up to be another wonderful weekend, with visitors from around the world coming to Portsoy to see the inspiring sight of traditional wooden boats afloat.  Taken at last year’s Festival, this image shows the unique coming together since the 1940s of several Fifies, in the 17th century harbour.
