Project Description

Portsoy Salmon Bothy

Community Group

A former working Salmon House, the Salmon Bothy has been lovingly restored and comprises a museum, a base for family history research and a fully functional community space and venue.

The museum showcases displays, artefacts and information about Portsoy’s harbours, the industry and trade and the salmon fishing operations. Admission is free, for more information and opening times please visit the Museum page.

The Bothy is also used a base for Family History Research, with a trained genealogist available to assist by appointment.

Upstairs at the Bothy is a fully functional community space used by many clubs and societies on a regular basis, providing the perfect backdrop for cosy folk music evenings, musical recitals and small theatre groups. It is also the home of Folk at the Salmon Bothy, a highly active traditional music club which now holds its own annual festival, The HAAL. The venue is available for hire for meetings, workshops, classes and many types of events and gatherings, including weddings and parties.

The Salmon Bothy is run entirely by a group of enthusiastic volunteers, as part of Portsoy Community Enterprise. The group receives no public funding towards operational costs, all costs are met through donations and venue hire charges which are kept as minimal as possible.
