Banff’s charter as a Royal Burgh dates from 1163 confirmed by Robert the Bruce in 1324. Banff is well-known for cliff top paths, hidden coves and interesting architecture.

Banff, originally was a port but was silted up in the 1800’s, is a traditional Scottish town of period character with fine town houses and harbour.
