Portsoy is a small town in Aberdeenshire, 54 miles north-west of Aberdeen, on the north-east coast of Scotland. Portsoy was created a burgh of Barony in 1550. Portsoy is well-known for its ‘Portsoy Marble’ a type of serpentine used for making local jewellery. ‘Portsoy Marble’ was also used for parts of the chimney-pieces in the Palace of Versailles in France, for Louis XIV. The Old harbour originally built c.1550 was re-developed in the 18th century by Partick Ogilvy to export the marble. The New harbour was built in 1825-28 to enhance the fishing industry. Portsoy over-looks Links Bay, an inlet of the Moray Firth; it is steeped in maritime history and was once one an important fishing port. The railway arrived in 1859 and the area became a popular tourist resort, it has a hotel, an inn, a church hall and shops in the square. Built around the Old harbour are some historically interesting buildings dating back to c.1600. On a cliff top, to the east of town stands the remains of Boyne Castle built c.1300. The harbours are now used by pleasure crafts, the Sailing Club and some creel boats catching crab and lobster. There is a Traditional Small Boat Festival held in Portsoy each July.
