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.

Have you dreamt of staying on location of award winning show Peak Blinders?
November 26th 2021
Look no further than The Sail Loft. Located overlooking the beach and only a stones throw from the set of Peaky Blinders Season 6!
Back in early February, 2021, a huge film crew and a star-studded cast descended on the tiny village of Portsoy. Shrouded in mystery and unchanged by the relentless passing of time, it is no surprise that the sleepy village of Portsoy was chosen to shoot the 6th series of Peaky Blinders.
The village harbour was given a Peaky blinders makeover. The port looked like it stepped right out of early 1900s France. And the currently closed Shore Inn was given the Peaky Blinders treatment too! The interior was revamped into the fictional Hotel Lanaan in true Peaky Blinders style; dark and rundown with tattered windows and a ragged sign. You can practically smell the sweat and whisky!
Peaky blinders star Cillian Murphy was seen enjoying the beautiful Portsoy beaches and indulging in ice cream from Portsoys award winning ice cream parlour.
Why not explore the port used in Peaky Blinders Season 2 and relive the epic drama for yourself by visiting Portsoy and staying in our gorgeous hostel. Unlike the gritty, grubby set of Peaky Blinders, Sail Loft hostel is light and clean and airy.
Peaky Blinders season 6 is out early 2022.
