Duffus Castle

The ruined remains of Duffus Castle lie 1¼ miles (2 km) southeast of the settlement of Duffus in Moray Council Area. In part dating from the mid 12th century, the castle was rebuilt many times over the years before being finally abandoned in the mid 17th century. Today the castle remains stand on a man-made motte hill surrounded by a moat, although originally it stood within Loch Spynie which has now been drained. Subsidence has caused much of the remains to slide down the hillside. The castle is under the stewardship of Historic Environment Scotland. Gordonstoun School lies to the north.
