Duff House in Banff, Aberdeenshire, United Kingdom | Self Catering

Welcome to Duff House, Banff Scotland, Scotland. Duff House is a treasure House and cultural arts centre operated by a unique partnership of Historic Scotland, the National Galleries of Scotland and Aberdeenshire Council. Story-tellers, musicians and artists are at home here and Duff House organises a regular artistic programme of exhibitions, music and lectures.
Duff House was designed by William Adam and built between 1735 and 1740 as the seat of the Earls Fife. There have been an astonishing variety of occupants and visitors to the House over the two and half centuries since it was built. There were the Duffs themselves, an ambitious family who acquired great wealth, power and status but were seldom lucky in love. One unhappy Countess Fife even attempted to murder her husband within the walls of Duff House! An army of servants kept the House and policies running smoothly, and in the twentieth century Duff House was in turn a palm court hotel, a sanatorium and a prisoner of war camp. Opened as a country house gallery after extensive restoration in 1995, Duff House, Banff Scotland now enjoys 5-star visitor attraction status from Aberdeen & Grampian Tourist Board.
With extensive grounds and woodland walks by the river Deveron you will find a day is not enough.
