Towns & Villages

Macduff is a small coastal town in the Banff and Buchan area of Aberdeenshire, situated on Banff Bay looking out to the vast Moray Firth.

Linked by the seven-arch Deveron Bridge, the town is less than a mile from its neighbour, Banff, and is known for its fishing industry heritage. The centre of town revolves around the harbour that is where freshly caught seafood can be bought from local fishmongers, traditional fish and chip shops, or tasted at bars and restaurants.

Pay a visit to the Macduff Marine Aquarium – a jewel of the town, to learn about local wildlife and come face to face with a variety of species of sea creatures that live in the steely depths of the Moray Firth. Listen in to daily talks, watch feeding shows, take part in events, and get a feel of the sea creatures at interactive sessions and much more.

Play a round or two of golf on the greens at Royal Tarlair Golf Club which boasts spectacular views out to sea and across the Bay of Cullen. Or spend a quiet morning at the Tarlair Outdoor Swimming Pool to the east of the town, offering walks, atmospheric views and flashback in time to when the pool first opened in 1931.

Or for a more relaxing holiday, why not visit the Macduff Maritime Garden, or admire the stunning views after a stroll to the top of the Hill of Doune. Head to The Platform – a former railway station turned shopping destination – for a fabulous selection of home furnishings, clothing, a delicious patisserie, fashion and lots of quirky little gifts.
