Portsoy Community Enterprise: COVID-19 Response

The Directors have been closely monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19 and listening to the advice given by the UK & Scottish Governments and NHS Grampian.

Due to the current recommendation for vulnerable people to self-isolate, social distancing and gathering of large groups we have decided to temporarily close parts of our organisation and cancel the Scottish Traditional Boat Festival.

For information regarding each division please find details below.

This page will be updated as the situation develops and we kindly request you check back for updates regarding each division.

Portsoy Links Caravan Park

We are delighted to advise that our caravan site has reopened as of Wednesday 15th July for holidaymakers which include touring caravans, motorhomes and camping. Onsite facilities such as Toilets, Showers and Laundry will be open with enhanced cleaning and social distancing measures. If you have a self-contained caravan/motorhome we would ask that you use your own onboard facilities. We would ask that all bookings are paid for either online or by card payment.

Staying in the privately owned static caravans on site will resume from Friday 3rd July.

We will be contacting all customers with bookings prior to the reopening date to discuss options.

If you have booked a static caravan please contact the owners. We are unable to assist regarding bookings for privately owned caravans.

If you have any questions please contact us at contact@portsoylinks.org or via Social Media

We look forward to welcoming you back to Portsoy.
