Portsoy Harbour

By 18th June 2021 No Comments

Portsoy is a picturesque town on the north coast of Aberdeenshire. It has two harbours, the old one, built in 1692 and the new one. It has been used in several TV dramas and in the 2016 film Whisky Galore.

I remember going for a lovely walk along the water side. We went into a couple of pubs & had a good feed in one of them. Portsoy was very quiet and not overly busy. Every one seemed to know each other & were very friendly.

This page is part of Coastal Knowledge, an online exhibition mapping some of the amazing places on the coast of Scotland.  It includes pictures, memories, artworks, stories and videos submitted by a variety of people including scientists, artists, coastal dwellers, tourists, and community organisations.  We want to share the beauty of the Scottish coast, but also its vital role in the day-to-day lives of people in Scotland- for example, its many industrial roles.

This exhibition is dynamic and ongoing- and we’d love for you to share contributions for it too!  To learn more and submit your own coastal knowledge, visit the main page of the exhibition.
