Portsoy Community Enterprise (PCE) is a social enterprise, driven by the enthusiasm and passion of volunteers who bring together an array of assets, events and offerings, which keep alive the ingrained heritage and cultures of the north east of Scotland.
From an intended one off event to celebrate the 300th year of Portsoy’s harbour in 1993, the annual Scottish Traditional Boat Festival was born. In the years following, the organisation has also added to its portfolio The Salmon Bothy, The Boatshed, Portsoy Links Caravan Park and The Sail Loft.
PCE offers the opportunity for both the local community and visitors to Portsoy to take part in and experience real authentic cultural experiences, including traditional music programmes and traditional boat building courses.
Working collaboratively, the whole organisation is aimed at providing economic benefit from tourism for the town of Portsoy and surrounding area, with all of PCE’s assets belong to the community.
