What we see of Duffus Castle dates back to the 14th C., but the castle sits on the motte of a norman castle, which was of wooden construction.The main tower is an object lesson on why not to built a heavy structure on unstable foundations, as one side of the tower has broken away and is to be seen at he bottom of the motte.
The castle is on quite a large site and there are the remains of an ancient roadway and bridge.

The castle is in the care of Historic Scotland, and admission is free

Directions: Located 8 kms north-west of Elgin, North-east Scaotland
