Banff

Banff and Macduff don't quite merge; they are in fact separated by the valley of the River Deveron and bridged by the stunning arched bridge completed in 1799 by John Smeaton.

Within the Deveron Valley lies the magnificent Duff House, designed by William Adam and built between 1735 and 1740. Duff House is widely thought to be one of Britain's finest Georgian houses. It was built for William Braco, who became Earl of Fife in 1759.

Banff contains a variety of fascinating architecture. The Upper Town is perhaps the more splendid part of the town, with grand Georgian buildings aplenty.

Though no longer a commercial port, Banff harbour still serves leisure traffic and the area gives an insight into what Banff must have been like before the coming of its more upmarket upper town.

There are plans to develop a Marina at Banff Harbour, details are still sketchy but for more information click here.

Banff's Tourist Information Centre opens during the summer and can be found by the car park you pass en route to Banff Bridge and Macduff. One of their walkman tours provides an excellent way to gain an insight into the town, its history and its architecture.
