Duff House

AB45 3SX

Duff House, a magnificent example of Baroque architecture, was designed by William Adam in 1735 for William Duff of Braco. It stands adjacent to the ancient royal burgh of Banff, and was re-opened in 1995 after extensive restoration.

As Scotland's premier country house gallery and outstation of the National Galleries of Scotland, it now houses a rich collection of paintings, furniture and works of art, including El Greco's St Jerome in Penitence, J.G. Cuyp's Dutch Family Group and three panels by Francois Boucher.

Duff House is situated in parkland which provides walks along the river Deveron and also features the Gothic Mausoleum of the Duff family. The House also has a tea room and shop and an audio-visual display giving the history of the House and family.

This property is managed by Historic Scotland.
