Scottish Traditional Boat Festival at Portsoy

Is anyone going up there this year, July 8th and 9th? i will be in Aberdeen area then, so may well look up. I usually go up every second year, as it doesn't seem to vary much. The fifies Reaper and Isabella Fortuna are both to be there this year, also Pilot Us,a 1950s seiner from Lerwick.

Well i'm not going to be able to go after all. Its not possible to get a car anywhere near the harbour and as i'm still not able to walk any distance after my ankle operation its just not worth the risk of doing more damage.

Was in Portsoy last week, visiting whilst on holiday in the area. I must admit I was kicking myself for bad planning when I realised that the festival would be taking place the weekend after I went home. Still, the "Shore Inn", overlooking the harbour had a very nice guest beer on, a light, German-style one called "Helga's Big Jugs"!!! (I kid you not.) 5% and beautiful! Well worth trying if they have it on again.

Well i'm glad I didn't try to get down to the festival after all. I was up in Cullen tho for a couple of days. The car park in Portsoy was out the door on Sunday and I would never have managed to walk to the harbour.

Hope to see many more photos to go with the ones the Jim Pottinger has put up.
