Welcome to the archive website of the 15th
Scottish Traditional Boat Festival which was on June 20th 21st and 22nd 2008.
For the 2009 website
Our theme for 2008 was:
This was in recognition of
our aim to complete the restoration of the
Salmon Bothy and
to reflect the fact that, in its commercial heyday, Portsoy handled both
salmon and herring
We incorporated historic and contemporary exhibits of the fishing
industry for which the region is so famous.
Once again we provided a great weekend of beautiful
boats, fascinating demonstrations, wonderful music, song and dance,
delicious food and a host of activities for all ages.
