The beautifully restored Salmon Bothy at Portsoy includes a fascinating museum featuring the history of Portsoy harbour and of the town and surrounding area, plus a section dedicated to Scotland’s once significant salmon fishing industry. The building also features a performance area – “Upstairs at the Bothy” – in which an ongoing programme of presentations, exhibitions and workshops takes place. The Bothy also includes full computer facilities for genealogical research and with its trained team of volunteers it provides an excellent facility for visitors to explore their roots. The museum’s content is also being developed to provide written and pictorial local family history.
