Auchindoun & Dufftown

Auchindoun consists of a small settlement of homes close to Dufftown which is an attractive and historic town in Moray situated on the river Fiddich. Built by James Duff, 4th Earl of Fife in 1817, Dufftown was originally planned as a settlement for soldiers returning home from the Napoleonic Wars. Today, this attractive Highland burgh is known for its connections to the malt whisky industry as well as its fascinating history and striking scenery.
Dufftown's focal point is its village square, where the distinctive and imposing clock tower (originally the local jail) houses the Tourist Information Board. Not far from the village square, Dufftown Whisky and Heritage Centre offers visitors the chance to find out more about the history of whisky making in Speyside.
