Reasons to visit

Right on the shoreline, The Sail Loft is the perfect place for a peaceful break on the Aberdeenshire coast.

Our bright, modern premises are spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything needed for an enjoyable break.

There are walking routes right on the doorstep, the beach is a stone’s throw away and there’s plenty of wildlife to spot. Golf courses, water sports, and visitor attractions including Macduff Marine Aquarium and Spey Bay Wildlife Reserve are a short drive away.

The Sail Loft is within easy reach of Portsoy’s picturesque historic harbour and a range of great eateries, cafes, takeaways and shops. Get away from it all with a coastal break at Portsoy.
