Scottish Traditional Boat Festival

If you are interested in beautiful local food, music, ceilidhs, sea shanties, scottish dancing, smoked herrings, or even boats, then this wonderful festival taking place on June 26th and 27th 2010, is a must.

All the events take place round the 500 year old harbur of Portsoy, about 30-40 minutes due east of Findhorn.

Extract from the Scottish Traditional Boat Festival 2010 website:

‘Nestled in the northeast corner of Scotland, between Inverness and Aberdeen, Portsoy’s Scottish Traditional Boat Festival provides a holiday or short break destination with something for everyone – a real family affair.

The 2010 Festival has set its sights on helping bring the great traditional skills of the past into the future for folk of all ages, the young in particular.

The Festival puts a special emphasis on boat building, restoration and sailing, and on associated traditional crafts, music and art. The 2010 programme also includes a Food Fayre, a fun run and a 10K road run – a feast of opportunities for all to see, take part in and enjoy.’
