Have Good Times While Doing Good
Take a break in Portsoy knowing that in doing so, you’re supporting sustainability and economic regeneration.

The Sail Loft
Right on the shore of the internationally renowned Moray Firth coast is the newly created Sail Loft, recently awarded 4 star hostel status by VisitScotland. This brand new self-catering accommodation facility offers 25 luxurious beds and bunks and boasts a carefully designed modern open-plan communal kitchen, dining area and lounge, laundrette, drying room, secure cycle storage and wash-down area.
Overlooking Portsoy’s beautiful Links Bay beach and surrounded by rugged headlands there is no better location to escape from it all and relax. Enjoy strolls by the sea or invigorating walks or cycle rides along the Banffshire coastline where you’re likely to spot some of the local wildlife, including leaping dolphins and diving gannets. Discover the heritage of Portsoy as you visit the harbour which dates back to 1693 and the beautiful Loch Soy. For those looking to learn a new skill, we can even provide the facilities for courses in boat building, traditional music and storytelling!
As dusk falls enjoy stunning sunsets and star-lit skies, you may even be lucky enough to catch sight of the amazing Northern Lights. And where better to watch this from than our walled garden where you can enjoy the BBQ facilities and relax in our wood fired hot tub!
Combined with a hearty welcome from our team, The Sail Loft really does provide you with all the comforts to allow you to explore and enjoy this remarkable area.
