The Salmon Bothy Museum

Toggle location map

A former working Salmon House, the Salmon Bothy has been lovingly restored and now comprises a museum, a base for family history research and a fully functional community space and venue. The museum showcases displays, artefacts and information about Portsoy’s harbours, the industry and trade and the salmon fishing operations.

Admission is free. The Museum at the Salmon Bothy will be open throughout the Summer. For details please visit our website:

Anyone who wants to be shown around the museum outwith these times should contact Anne for an appointment. Email: or Telephone: 01261 842474.

There is no charge to enter the Museum, however we do appreciate donations as we receive no public funding and the Bothy is operated entirely by volunteers.
