Duffus Castle Visitor Information Guide

Duffus Some 2 miles inland from Hopeman the great Norman mound of Duffus Castle, once lapped by the waters of Loch of Spynie, rises from the Laigh of Moray.

The stone castle on the site was preceded by a motte and bailey stronghold of earthwork and timber, regarded as the finest in the north of Scotland because of the outer precinct ditch which surrounds the castle.
