Bunkhouse accommodation Portsoy, on the Moray Firth coast

The new Sail Loft Bunkhouse has a fabulous coastal location overlooking the beach and out to sea in the picturesque north east town of Portsoy. The bunkhouse provides accommodation for 25 guests across a variety of rooms including bunk dorms, twin and family rooms.  It offers a modern open plan shared kitchen, dining area and lounge with wood burner and shower facilities with plenty hot water. It is within easy walking distance of the picturesque historic harbour and the town of Portsoy which offers good amenities and also where the acclaimed Scottish Traditional Boat Festival takes place in late June/early July each year.

North East Scotland Preservation Trust managed the conversion of the Bunkhouse from a group of traditional near-derelict former sail loft buildings and cottages, retaining their original charm while upgrading the buildings to a high quality modern use.

The Banffshire coast is known as Scotland’s Dolphin Coast and Portsoy is the perfect base for exploring this glorious part of Scotland and its natural and historic environment. Portsoy is just 10 minutes’ drive from the eastern end of the Moray Coast Trail at Cullen.
