Following negotiations with the previous trust and Aberdeenshire Council, it has been agreed that the Scottish Traditional Boat Festival will take over the project to restore the superb Salmon Bothy at the west end of the links at Portsoy.

Work has already started on raising the significant funds required to bring the building up to a state where it can be used.

Initial plans for its use include on the ground floor, an exhibition of the salmon fishery artefacts. The first floor will provide a home for the development of the cultural projects already initiated including traditional music and the visual arts.

Outside in the summer months the ground will provide an area for the boat building project.

Importantly the Salmon Bothy will also provide a permanent headquarters for the Festival.
