  • I take my family here often when we holiday in Moray and they love it. On a nice day we take a picnic, the children explore the ruins of the castle, learn about its history and use their imaginations....  more »
  • My niece took us to see Duffus Castle as she lives locally, not sure I would have heard of it otherwise! Located in the beautiful rolling fields of the Scottish highlands what's left of Duffus Castle ...  more »
  • Car park is small so it's a good thing it doesn't get many visitors. An interesting place with lovely views over the Laich of Moray

  • Excellent example of a motte and bailey castle showing I retesting subsidence of the tower. Amazing that it's stayed in as big a piece as it has.
  • I love duffus castle
  • Fascinating historical ruined castle. Has information boards explaining history of the area. Also next to RAF Lossiemouth so great vantage point for watching the aircraft .
  • Great little castle near an air force base. There's a geocache hidden somewhere around there too, so try to find that if you can!
  • Nice historic place
