A former working Salmon House, the Salmon Bothy now comprises a museum, a base for family history research and a fully functional community space and venue.
The museum is graded as a four star Historic Attraction by Museums Galleries Scotland and showcases displays, artefacts and information about Portsoy’s harbours, the industry and trade and the salmon fishing operations. Admission is free, opening times vary.
Upstairs at the Bothy is used by many clubs and societies on a regular basis, providing entertainment for visitors from music to cinema and more. It is also the home of Folk at the Salmon Bothy, a traditional music club which holds regular music nights and its own annual festival, The HAAL, in early June.
