The ancestral home of the Moray family, this grand medieval stronghold is one of the only motte and bailey castles in the United Kingdom. These wooden fortifications usually consisted of a keep, with an enclosed courtyard or ‘bailey’, with a final defence of a ditch and palisade fence circling this. Duffus Castle served its purpose for over 500 years, into the 1700’s. Work began anew in the 1300s to build the stone castle that can be seen today. By 1705, unfortunately the castle was abandoned and fell into ruin, although still remains an impressive sight.
Glen Moray Distillery
Experts in the art of distillery, this award-winning single malt has been distilled on the banks of the sparkling River Lossie since 1897. Even today, the whisky is distilled by hand in a steady fashion, never rushed and always in balance. The traditions and learnings of their ancestors are not forgotten, which shines through in the complex whisky produced. A unique feature of the tours at Glen Moray Distillery is that the tours are conducted by the distillery workers themselves – who better to explain the inner workings of the process than the passionate staff who know the distillery like the back of their hand?
