Macduff Marine Aquarium

[Macduff Marine Aquarium]

Macduff's history is inextricably linked to the richness of the sea, so it seems fitting that it's also home to an excellent marine aquarium: in fact the only one on the east coast north of the Highland / Lowland boundary, and with a major refurbishment in 2017. Different sections of the building represent the different wildlife found in each of the Moray Firth's marine zones, with the star of the show a massive kelp tank that's open to the sky. So no man-eating sharks here, but good value and a fascinating diversion for an hour or so. Tickets are valid for the whole day, so you can nip out for, erm, a fish supper before continuing your visit.
