|Organisation:||North East Scotland Preservation Trust|
|Project title:||The Sail Loft|
Led by North East Scotland Preservation Trust in partnership with Portsoy Community Enterprise, the Sail Loft Bunkhouse was supported with a grant of £878,200 from HLF’s Heritage Enterprise scheme to repair and convert a group of listed and ‘at risk’ 18th century buildings into 4-star bunkhouse accommodation for tourists. Funding was also received from Historic Environment Scotland (£360,000) via the Portsoy CARS and the Coastal Communities Fund (£601,000). The Architectural Heritage Fund supported the development of the project and provided a loan to cover cash flow requirements during implementation. The Sail Loft, Portsoy opened for business in February 2017.
