Overlooking the beach and across the Moray Firth this newly created bunkhouse has an absolutely stunning location. Converted from the near derelict Portsoy sail lofts, the Sail Loft is a modern and well equipped facility providing self-catering accommodation for 25 persons in a mixture of single accessible, twin, triple and bunk rooms. Portsoy is a perfect base for exploring this glorious part of the world. With rugged natural beauty, an abundance of wildlife, historic castles, whisky trails and more, there is plenty on offer for all to explore and enjoy. Portsoy is also just 10 minutes' drive from the eastern end of the Moray Coast Trail at Cullen. The Sail Loft is within easy walking distance of the 17th Century historic harbour and town centre with good range of amenities. Don't miss the Traditional Boat Festival, which takes place in late June/early July each year. Credit to Allan Robertson, Colin McLean and Tom Daly for photographs.
