    Wanted to visit Duff House for years but was always the wrong time of year. Managed to visit today and not disappointed.

    It was really interesting, steeped in history, amazing architecture and beautiful house.
    The tour guide (sorry forgot your name) that took us on our tour at 1.30pm was really informative and helpful like the other staff that was there.

    We had a great afternoon, thank you so much. We enjoyed ourselves so much learning about the paintings and history of Duff House that we forgot to ask if we could take photos.

    My wife and I dropped in yesterday (Friday 26th) for a light snack. The delicious Cullen Skink came with a small pot of cream and a good helping of bread while I had the Lentil soup with a cheese and bacon scone which was also very tasty. Ask for the homemade oatcakes and you won't be disappointed. The garden centre is a gem with an excellent range even early in the season so we bought a compact Sedum and a Helianthos. Would have bought more but it was going to be some time before we would be home.

    Banff harbour is full of small boats which makes it look a bit overcrowded and a bit relaxing for some reason but it has brilliant views and you can see some nature around here.

    it is on the main street above the library ( lift access) and has a very fine collection of Banff silver in one room and lots of local artefacts in the other. Run by helpful and knowledgeable volunteers so make a donation!

    Fairly straightforward walk to the bridge but continue on for a circular walk back into Banff. Not signposted but the route is on Walkhighlands.
    Enjoy

    We really loved Banff, (and we didn’t even get to the castle) we were enjoying the sea too much. Also nightly recommend The Broken Fiddle (dog friendly cafe too) our favourite meal out in Scotland during our weeks holiday.
    The harbour was lovely too.

    Really good food. Upstairs restaurant, but can eat in the bar. Lovely staff and friendly locals. Food was really great. It is kind of misclassified on trip advisor. I would class more as a restaurant rather than under nightlife

    This fountain is quite impressive because the carvings. They are amazing! The water does not connect to the fountain but that does go for most memorial fountains.

    This cemetery is very old and isnt in the best shape. Some of the gravestones look very good. There is also a little building in the kirk yard. Worth a look.
