Banff, Duff House Mausoleum

Door open days

16 September 2018 (10 am - 4 pm)


Allegedly built on, or near, the site of a Carmelite burial ground this “Gothic” structure, also known as the Fife Mausoleum, houses the remains of the first five Earls of Fife (starting 1705) and other Duff family members. Situated in an extremely peaceful and picturesque location, so much so it has been used for weddings, it also contains several excellent examples of quite early Coade stone (an artificial stone), still here after more than 200 years in what is perhaps the most northerly example.

Please note that the mausoleum is a 1 mile walk from the parking and facilities at Duff House.  There are 2 disabled parking spaces available at the mausoleum and 3 steps required to enter the building.
